CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 
MARCH ZOOKEEPER FOR A DAY WINNER!

1st grader at Kingston Elementary

Gators & Friends is a strong supporter of reading literacy in our community. KTAL NBC 6 believes that readers are leaders and we support reading in school.

That's why both Gators & Friends along with KTAL NBC 6 have teamed up to celebrate the joy of reading with Zookeeper For A Day. 

HERE'S HOW YOUR SCHOOL CAN PARTICIPATE:

  • Must be an Elementary School in Northwest Louisiana, Northeast Texas or Southwest Arkansas.

  • School will display provided posters that promote the program in the school.

  • Each participating student will receive a bookmark with Gators & Friends on it.

  • School will determine the reading requirement for students to participate.  Each student who meets the requirement will be allowed to put their name in the monthly drawing.

  • At the conclusion of each month, the school will draw the name of one student to win a Family 4 Pass to Gators & Friends. Passes may be redeemed any time during 2017.

  • The winning student's name will be included in an additional drawing from all school winners to be the Zookeeper for that month.  That student will get a "behind the scenes" experience at the park to learn about the animals, feed the gators, etc. This must take place during the month they are selected.

Contact Gators & Friends for more information!
