Help the City of Fort Worth Name its New Literacy Initiative!

Enter Your Submission

Every great initiative or program starts with a name or slogan that conveys the purpose of its mission.

The City of Fort Worth is partnering with Read Fort Worth and other community and FWISD programs aligned to support this important literacy goal:

"By 2025, 100% of 3rd grade students in FWISD will be reading at or above grade level."

Less than two-thirds of FWISD 3rd grade students currently read at grade level and they need our support to help them achieve this goal.

A new city initiative will encourage participation from city staff, neighborhood and faith-based organizations, area agencies and businesses in a collective effort to provide free literacy-based instruction, books and other resources to FWISD students.

All name suggestions must be submitted online no later than 5 p.m., February 21, 2019
