NAPLES, Fla.- We are telling you something good tonight. Some Collier County public school students will get to shoot some hoops and travel to see the Miami Heat game on Friday night.
Three classes were selected. That's about 60 students. They enjoyed pizza and got a t-shirt before getting on a bus at district headquarters. The bus was expected to leave by 3pm.
Students won the trip after participating in a reading contest. Since January, students worked to improve their reading skills. The contest was inspired by Miami Heat players Dwyane Wade and LeBron James who promote reading through their foundations.
Students will get front row seats to watch the players warm up and prepare to defeat the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday.
