Super Smash Bros. Brawl Wii Tournament @ Carpenter—PRESS RELEASE

St. Louis, MO . . . The St. Louis Public Library is proud to host 64 teens from around the City of St. Louis as they vie for top honors in the Second Annual Super Smash Bros. Brawl Wii Tournament. The event takes place at Carpenter Branch, 2209 S. Grand Blvd., on August 7 at 11 a.m. The event is FREE and open to the public.

During July, more than three hundred 6th-12th graders participated in qualifying rounds at Library locations throughout the city. To make it into the Super Smash Bros. Brawl Wii Tournament, players had to be a Top 5 Finisher in the qualifying rounds. The competition was so intense that many teens played at more than one Branch in their attempts to make the Tournament.

In addition to being awarded gold, silver, and bronze trophies, the top three finishers will receive great prizes including gift certificates and specially decorated Wii game controllers. Certificates will be awarded to each teen that participates in the Tournament.

For more information, call 657-1000.

The St. Louis Public Library’s Second Annual Super Smash Bros. Brawl Wii Tournament is sponsored by the St. Louis Public Library, Target, Papa John’s Pizza, Shop ‘n’ Save, and Fitz’s Root Beer.
