Are you onboard with the 2020 Premier’s Reading Challenge!

With one month to go, there is still time to join thousands of other children across the state in the Premier’s Reading Challenge which closes 28 August 2020. The challenge aims to encourage as many children as possible to read, experience and enjoy books, including books in languages other than English, and audio books. So get reading today!

The Premier's Reading Challenge is open to all state, non-state and home-educated students from Prep to Year 9 and children enrolled at an early childhood centre. Reading can take place at school or at home!

In 2019, more than 2.31 million books were read by more than 168,000 Queensland children and students from 937 schools and 386 early childhood centres.


Free resources available

You’ll find everything you need to know for this year’s challenge on the How to register page as well as NEW interactive reader record forms, posters and bookmarks on the Downloads and forms page. The PRC book lists are a helpful guide for reading material.

The Premier’s Reading Challenge wouldn’t take place without the generous support from corporate partners QSuper, Booktopia, Queensland Ballet and The Courier-Mail.
