Premier's Reading Challenge

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

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.

Congratulations to all the readers who took part in the 2016 Premier's Reading Challenge! This year, an outstanding 165,000 young Queenslanders from 900 schools and 414 early childhood centres took part in the challenge reading a total of 2.24 million books, an impressive rise from last year's record of 1.95 million.

The reading period has now finished and Certificates of Achievement have been mailed for the Premier's Reading Challenge Celebration Weeks to be held from 7 - 18 November 2016.

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