Mrs. Schleifer's 3rd Grade Class - The winners of Worzalla's Name the Mascot competition.

Stevens Point, Wisconsin (April 14, 2023) - Worzalla's new book mascot will now be known as Paige Turner thanks to Mrs. Schleifer's 3rd grade class at Washington Elementary School in Stevens Point, WI. The class's name Paige Turner was chosen in a round of public voting through Worzalla's Facebook Page, receiving over 800 votes.

"We congratulate Mrs. Schleifer's class for coming up with such a creative name that the community loved," said Brianne Petruzalek, Vice President of Human Resources of Worzalla. "We look forward to having Paige Turner out and about in the community to spread the love of reading."

At the beginning of the competition, classrooms throughout the Stevens Point area were invited to submit a name along with a rationale for why their entry was the best. Washington Elementary's 3rd grade class said that Paige Turner should be Worzalla's mascot's name because the name was akin to "page turner," or a good book that you can't wait to turn the page and keep reading.

Mrs. Schleifer's class will receive a pizza party, a $250 donation for supplies for their classroom, and a visit from the Worzalla mascot.

"Our classroom is going to use our pizza party as a way to celebrate the good that can come out of being creative and participating in the community," said Mrs. Schleifer, Washington Elementary's 3rd grade teacher. "It's always great when organizations within the community reach out and engage with the students and now we are going to be able to get some new school supplies to help make the next creative project we do even more impactful for the students."

Throughout the competition, Worzalla received 16 entries from classrooms across 9 different schools in the Stevens Point area. Finalist names in the public round of voting included Reed A. Bookman, Bookzalla and Chappy, the Chapter Book. Vote totals and finalists can be found on Worzalla's Facebook Page.

Worzalla offers to visit elementary classrooms with Paige Turner to provide an opportunity for students to learn about the exciting world of book manufacturing. Teachers can request a visit by contacting Worzalla at 715-254-9717.
