The project is created towards making children of school age to read again. It is an annual event which comprises of Competitions, Demonstrations, Storytelling, Lectures and Awards. It would bring over 1,500 pupils and students between 5 and 15 years of age from over 200 schools under one roof, in a conducive atmosphere of friendliness and healthy competition that will promote academics.
