Q: Do we have to turn the reading logs or pledge forms into YALSA or WWE?
A: No, neither of those documents needs to be submitted to YALSA or WWE. They are for librarians and educators’ personal use to track the reading progress of their tweens and teens. YALSA recommends that you collect the pledge forms and create a wall display of them as a reminder to the tweens and teens as well as to celebrate their commitment to reading.

Q: How can I participate?
A: If you did not register for the challenge before July 31, 2011 then your organization is not eligible to participate.

You’re welcome to participate in next year’s challenge. Registration will open up the second week of April, 2012 and will run through July 2012. During that time the online registration form will be available from www.ala.org/wrestlemania.
