About the Tournament

Let's get your students in the habit of reading a minimum of 15 minutes daily outside of school! As a contracted vendor across NYCDOE schools, we are proud to have helped NYCDOE K-5 students increase reading time at home by upwards of 30%!

Through the Litnerd Reading Club Tournament, your students will be inspired to read in their free time. All students will receive access to the Litnerd Reading Club platform, complete with books, formative assessments, movies, and more.

Getting Started & Orientation

Litnerd staff will visit NYC schools in person for a school wide orientation to provide guidance on how the tournament will work. Flyers will be provided for parents and teachers.


Prior to the start of the tournament, schools must provide Litnerd with a student & teacher roster. After Litnerd receives the student roster, student login and signup instructions will be provided.  Schools must ensure that parents signup and create parent account to monitor child progress. Teachers must create teacher account to monitor class progress.
