The principal of Most Precious Blood School has won a national reading contest and 101 copies of the newest "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" book for her school's library.
Despite 35-degree temperatures, Alexandria Bergman read from the school's roof for a school day last month to encourage students to read, sponsor Pizza Hut said in a statement.
Her prize for winning the 2013 Pizza Hut Book It! National Young Readers Week Principal Challenge -- copies of Jeff Kinney's "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck," the eighth book in the children's series.
In addition, the restaurant chain is serving pizza to the entire school, 1529 Barthold St.
"I didn't even tell my students what I was reading for," Bergman said in the statement. "It was more about showing how important reading is and to do it in a fun way at school."
More than 1,200 principals participated in the challenge, reading more than 9,600 hours nationally, the statement said.
