What’s in a name?

A lot.

A new city initiative will encourage participation from city staff, neighborhood and faith-based organizations, area agencies and businesses in a collective effort to provide free literacy-based instruction, books and other resources to FWISD students. But it needs a name.

All name suggestions must be submitted online no later than 5 p.m., February 21, 2019.

The City of Fort Worth is partnering with Read Fort Worth and other community and FWISD programs aligned to support this important literacy goal:


• Keep your suggestion simple – five words or less!

• Neighbors of all ages who reside in Fort Worth are encouraged to submit their name suggestions.

• The winning name will be announced at the March 5, 2019 City Council Meeting at City Hall.

• The neighbor who submits the winning name will be publicly recognized and given an award certificate at the March 5, 2019 City Council Meeting at City Hall.
