Northwestern State Basketball is partnering with Champions for Literacy to host a Fight for Literacy Game (presented by International Paper) to benefit United Way of Northwest Louisana and help increase access to books for all children in our area

Together, these Champions for Literacy are making sure every child is resourced and inspired to become a strong reader. Reading on grade level by the end of 3rd grade is a powerful and proven indicator that children will graduate high school and be college or career-ready. Join us by becoming a Champion for Literacy and donating to the cause!


100% of donations will stay local with United Way of Northwest Louisana to fund their Imagination Library literacy program. $50 can provide a year's worth of books for one child!
