A free Reading Contest based on Secrets in the Shadows from the Bluford Series

The Common Knowledge Scholarship Foundation at Nova Southeastern University is administering a free reading competition in March for high school students in remedial reading classes. Funded by an private education grant, the CKSF Reading Team Challenge is designed to help motivate students to read by adding a fun, competitive element to the experience.

Reading teachers nationwide are encouraged to establish a team of five students to represent their schools. Students will receive a free copy of Secrets in the Shadows from the Bluford Series and take a short, internet-based, multiple choice quiz on facts from the first few chapters. High scoring students will receive prizes and the winning team will win a trophy for their school.

The March challenge is open to all high schools across the country that have a remedial reading program but limited to the first 25 schools to request participation. For school registration information, contact Joanne Santivasci at 954-262-8553 or by Friday, March 4th.
