Applications for the Middle School Reading Ambassador initiative is open for Fall/Spring 2021/22.
This program positions local 6 through 8th graders as reading ambassadors in their own high schools. WOW Middle School Reading Ambassadors interact with published authors of young adult literature, receive books by that author and share their experience with their peers to promote reading in their school communities. This initiative is administered by WOW in the University of Arizona College of Education. For more information, visit our ambassador page.
