Announcing the Lerner Sports Database Reading Challenge

Lerner Publishing Group (Lerner) will sponsor the upcoming Beanstack reading challenge, called The Lerner Sports Challenge. The challenge aims to support families, schools, and libraries throughout the United States, which are working to implement distance learning initiatives in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It will take place from May 1st to May 31st, 2020.

Maintain Reading Progress with Distance Learning

The challenge comes just in time to reinforce students’ school year reading practice, while simultaneously giving them the excitement they’ve been missing since live sports have been postponed.

The Lerner Sports Challenge will promote independent student reading through the use of best-in-class digital learning resources. Lerner will provide access to the Lerner™ Sports Database, which includes biographies of current and past athletes using digital literacy tools that correlate with multiple curriculum standards.

“The Lerner™ Sports Database is the perfect platform to engage sports fans and young readers alike during these unprecedented times,” said Adam Lerner, publisher and CEO of Lerner Publishing Group. "With superstars from Mike Trout to Kawhi Leonard to Simone Biles, the database brings informational literacy and high-interest sports together in an engaging and kid-friendly platform.”

Challenge Your Students to Keep Reading

Zoobean and Lerner look forward to working with schools, libraries, and families to keep students reading during this unprecedented time.
