Thank you so so so much!!

The Top 4 schools have been ranked & placed in the Final Four Bracket to compete over the weekend!!! 

Let’s get ready to read……….


Teams can not add any new readers to compete in the Final Four. 

Your rosters are set and final.  New registered reader’s minutes will not be counted.


The Final Four contest begins now with a new scoreboard starting at zero, tracking points (earned with minutes read and donations collected) for the next 2 days (March 23 & 24 until 9pm).  


The top 2 teams (announced 3/25 by 10am) will then compete over the weekend (March 25 & 26 & 27 until 9pm) for the Championship.  Continue to check our website link for updates. There will be a new cleared scoreboard for the Championship game and teams will track new minutes and donations for the Championship.   The Championship School Team will be announced March 28th by 12pm. 

Every 30 minutes & every $25 donated = 1 point 

***  Please be sure to be honest when logging your minutes and if you have not already, please consider collecting a donation to help your team win!

Remember : All readers are still eligible for all their prize incentives so keep reading. The Top 4 teams will earn a literacy grant (amount differs depending on the bracket). Please be sure to have a school team representative available to attend our Charity Basketball game on Saturday April 1st at 4:30pm to receive the grant at half time. This is a picture worthy moment and we can’t wait!!


Saturday, April 1, 2023 at 4:30pm.  The NK Police Dept Team will be playing players from the NKHS Varsity Boys & Girls Basketball teams, as well as a few faculty & staff. The concession stand will be open and there will be cheerleaders and fun, games and music.   The Literacy grants and Top Readers/Donors prizes will be given out at half time!!! It will be a slam dunk of a good time!  You won’t want to miss it!  We are also collecting books for our library boxes so bring your gently used, good condition books to donate.  

Have fun and Happy Reading!

Thanks so much for Catching the NKEF Reading wave!
