Premier's Reading Challenge

The Premier's Reading Challenge is an annual state-wide initiative for state and non-state schools and home-educated students from Prep to Year 9, as well as children (aged up to five years) enrolled in an early childhood centre.

The Premier's Reading Challenge is not a competition but aims to improve literacy and encourage children to engage in reading for pleasure and learning.

Children and students can participate in the challenge within their school, early childhood centre or as individual readers (home-educated students, students whose schools are not participating in the program or children who are not enrolled in an early childhood centre).

The reading period has now finished. Congratulations to all readers who took part in the 2017 Premier's Reading Challenge! This year over 155,000 young Queenslanders from 850 schools and 410 early childhood centres took part in the challenge reading a total of 2.16 million books.

The Certificates of Achievement have now been mailed for the Premier's Reading Challenge Celebration Weeks to be held from 6-17 November 2017. Certificates of Participation are also available to download from the downloads and forms page.

For further information please contact the Premier's Reading Challenge program manager.
