SPOKANE, Wash.--KREM 2 News has an on-going campaign to have Seahawks Super Bowl champion Russell Wilson come to Wilson Elementary School.
The school, the district, KREM 2 News viewers and KREM 2 News staff were all using social media to let Wilson know that Wilson Elementary wants to see him in Spokane.

You could say that the Super Bowl champion is a wanted man.

On the superstars Twitter account you can find numerous inspirational comments. He wrote, “The Three P’s.: Always persevere. Have a great perspective. And always have a great purpose in life.”

A great purpose Wilson Elementary students have is to get Wilson to visit their school.
“Bring the whole team if you want. That would make our teachers and principal really happy,” said

A second grader read a letter to Wilson and had her mom post it to YouTube. The video had 1,000 views in one week. The school’s principal and district office said they spread Noelle Fries video through Facebook.

The video was set out to the Seahawks and their fan pages on Facebook and awaits people to share it.

KREM 2 News’ #Wilson2Wilson campaign has taken off. All you have to do is retweet one of the messages about the kids’ request from the KREM 2 News Twitter account to be a part of the campaign.

The City of Spokane even tweeted about the Wilson invite. NFL Films tweeted about a chant called “The Wilson Chant” that is popular at the school.

A manager in the Seahawks media office told KREM 2 News she thinks Wilson perhaps has seen the second grader’s YouTube invite.

When KREM 2 News asked the girl how it would make her feel if Wilson saw her letter, she replied with, “I would be really, really happy.”
