View the key dates for the 2012 Premier's Reading Challenge.
Prep to Year 2
If you are in Prep, Year 1 or Year 2, you need to read or experience 20 books between 22 May and 7 September 2012 to finish the Challenge.
You can do things like listen and read along with a book, or get someone to read to you. You can also share reading with your parents, teachers, siblings, or classmates.
Year 3 and Year 4
If you are in Year 3 or Year 4, you need to read 20 books between 22 May and 7 September 2012 to meet the Challenge.
Year 5 to Year 7
If you are in Year 5, Year 6 or Year 7, you must read 15 books between 22 May and 7 September 2012 to complete the Challenge.
Note: The requirement for Year 5 through to Year 7 students to read 15 books rather than 20 books acknowledges that older students are likely to select longer, more complex books and because of this, it may take longer to read.
Only students who read or experience the allocated number of books in the Challenge time period will successfully complete the Challenge.
If you meet the challenge, you will receive a certificate of achievement signed by the Premier of Queensland, Campbell Newman MP. By completing the challenge you could also help your school to reach 100 per cent participation which means that your school will go into the draw to win great prizes.
No. Everyone who reads the allocated number of books for their year level will receive a signed certificate from the Premier. You will not be eligible for any extra prizes if you read more than the set number of books.
Read any books that you like, but it is better to read books that challenge you.
Each year, DETE Library Services work together to make a guiding booklist that you can use to help choose books to read for the challenge.
The booklist should be used as a guide only and is not compulsory.
To keep a record of the books you have read, use the Reading Record Form 235k. Write the titles and authors of the books you have read and rate each book as you go.
If you are doing the Challenge as part of your school, you should receive a Reading Record Form from your teacher.
If you are a home-educated or individual student, you can register as an individual reader . After registering you can then download and print a Reading Record Form, you will need to get your parents to sign the form and fax or email the completed form to the PRC Project Manager.
Absolutely! Any books that you read can count towards both the Premier's Reading Challenge AND the MS Readathon.
