Why become a Northwest Ohio Teen Book Fest Sponsor?

  • This is a visible event – reaching throughout Northwest Ohio and the surrounding areas.  Partners will be clearly thanked and prominently displayed on all promotional and Festival materials. 
  • The Northwest Ohio community will benefit from the generosity & vision of those that believe this event is worthy of participation & support.
  • Partners will be helping keep teenagers reading for pleasure. Reading on their own benefits teenagers in many ways. It helps them develop stronger social skills, vocabulary and writing skills, and helps them to better understand & process more complex ideas. Reading also expands their ability to build knowledge overall – not just in subjects like English and language arts. Teens who read for fun are also better able to clarify their career goals and understand the consequences of risky behavior.
  • Partners will be seen as being supportive of literacy, the communities they serve, and the youth that are the futures of those communities.
