The Scholastic Readers Cup is an inter-school competition recognizing different schools’ personnel in improving literacy among their school children.This advocacy is geared to help make our students globally competitive and be able to attain creative, analytical and educated minds where endless possibilities can be opened.

It was on August 12, 2015 when the different exemplary efforts of educators in improving the literacy level of their schools were recognized in the 2nd Scholastic Readers Cup. Given recognitions were participating schools and the teachers, librarians, principals, schools and their students. Winners were chosen among two literacy programs: Scholastic’s Assessment and Enrichment Program (AEP) and Independent Reading Program (IRP). Both literacy programs proved instrumental in producing significant improvements in the reading abilities of the students. The competition ran from February 2014 to April 2015.
