About READBowl

READBowl is the FREE global reading competition for Pre-K through 8th grade classes and teams of students! This virtual program is designed to inspire students to read and provide teachers with a free platform to motivate students to increase reading minutes in school. In-school, distance/virtual and hybrid teams are all invited and encouraged to compete in READBowl.

Beginning on January 11, 2021, the day of the College Football National Championship, READBowl culminates on February 7, 2021 with the crowning of the National Reading Champions on Super Bowl Sunday!

This Just In -> Malcolm’s brand new children’s book, “My Very Favorite Book in the Whole Wide World,” will be added as a prize for winning teams thanks to Scholastic Publishing.
