The WWE in partner with the Pearson Foundation announced today their plans to expand WWE’s WrestleMania Reading Challenge and promote the importance of literacy through a new digital reading program. On February 4th, 2013, students between the ages of 4 and 11 will have the opportunity to join the WrestleMania Reading Challenge for a chance to win great prizes.

Through this new partnership with the Pearson Foundation’s digital reading initiative, We Give Books, students will be able to read children’s books online, virtually connect with WWE Superstar Reading Buddies and enter to win a trip to WrestleMania 29 or a school visit from a WWE Superstar.

The Superstars will also host reading celebrations by visiting kids at local schools across the country in order to spread the word of reading important with children of young ages. The celebrations will include special visits from the We Give Books ReadMobile.

To support the Pearson Foundation’s mission, WWE will make a contribution to children on behalf of We Give Books to provide book grants to schools across the country. We Give Books is a major effort by the Penguin Group and the Pearson Foundation to equip families, classrooms and libraries with print and online books for children. Every time someone reads a children’s book online at, the Pearson Foundation donates a book to a child who needs it. WWE will also utilize all its assets, including TV broadcasts, live events, digital and social media to encourage children to read.

Pearson Foundation President and CEO Mark Nieker, said,

“Reading should be a fundamental part of growing up and sharing the love of reading and the power of giving is what We Give Books is all about. Through this important partnership with WWE, we hope to reach more children and their families with the message of reading, giving and sharing.”

Michelle D. Wilson, Chief Marketing Officer, WWE, also said,

“WWE is proud to expand its commitment to literacy initiatives through this new partnership with the Pearson Foundation and We Give Books. Given that today’s youth are digitally connected at such an early age, the WrestleMania Reading Challenge will now reach more children than ever before.”

If you are between the ages of 4 and 11 visit the WrestleMania Reading Challenge at to be apart of the initiative!
