All-Stars Announced

Administr@tor’s parent company, Scholastic, recently announced the winners of the fourth annual READ 180 All-Star Awards, created to honor adolescents nationwide who have learned to read despite formidable odds. The nine winning students in grades four through 12 at schools from Providence, RI, to Fresno, CA, have overcome a myriad of obstacles that once prevented them from reading and achieving academic success.

Each of the nine READ 180 All-Stars will receive a $1,200 check from Scholastic, to be used toward furthering his or her education, and the winning students’ nominating teachers will each receive $1,000 worth of Scholastic READ 180 books and materials for their classrooms.

While the recipients of the awards range in age, location, and background, they’ve shared the experience of all older struggling readers—low reading skills resulting in low self-esteem and low achievement levels. Some of the award-winners faced additional hurdles: learning English as a second language, special-education classification, or physical and emotional challenges. Now, they have accomplished something remarkable—raising their reading scores, feeling more confident in class, achieving better attendance, testing out of special-education classes, even winning a district-wide spelling bee—and they all have plans to attend college.
