Campaign Details

It takes guts, courage and confidence to stand in front of a champion athlete and ask a tough question, and that’s exactly what we expect of a Write on Sports student reporter.

Meet Saadiq, a WoS student. A WoS teacher and educator at Saadiq’s school invited him to the Newark camp, hoping that the program might open up the shy boy.  It did.  At first, Saadiq didn't crack a smile and he was reluctant to engage the guests during the press conference or in the locker room. As time went on, however, he became more comfortable with the WoS format, asking multiple questions of each guest and becoming emboldened when talking to staff and working with other students. His feature story about an unfamiliar topic, lacrosse, piqued his curiosity. As he embraced the opportunity for which WoS stands: “identify your own learning goal," his confidence grew, and so did Saadiq.  

 Write on Sports takes aim at improving confidence, literacy and communication skills of middle school students through writing, public speaking and creating original videos about a topic they love. Using their passion for sports as the “hook,” students embrace the art of writing and develop communication skills in a way rarely found in the classroom. With a 4:1 student/teach ration, WoS empowers each student with the tools to succeed in life, such as:

  • Research and revision
  • Critical thinking
  • Creative freedom in video storytelling
  • Public speaking

 Write on Sports delivers tuition-free programs, including supplies, food and transportation, for sixth and seventh graders in under-served communities. Your donation helps to provide the necessary resources for the programs, allowing Write on Sports to reach more students in 2019.
