The Western Pennsylvania Council of Teachers of English (WPCTE) welcomes your participation in its annual English Festival! 

 

WPCTE has organized English Festivals for students, grades 4-12, in an effort to promote quality reading among our students. The goal of the festival is to communicate to students the value of literature in the enrichment of their lives. In order to attain that objective, students are required to read books from a predetermined list. All students of council members are invited to participate. Individual schools determine which students are eligible.

 

Books may be ordered independently or through WPCTE at a discounted rate.

 

All students who participate in the festivals are organized by their schools into teams of 3-5 in order to participate in various activities on the festival day itself.

 

This official website hopes to answer all of your questions and provide all of the forms necessary for student participation.
