2023 marks 20 years of the Premier’s Reading Challenge in South Australia!

To celebrate this momentous occasion, we are offering students the opportunity to receive a special, 20th Anniversary certificate in addition to their usual PRC award this year.

To qualify for this certificate, students need to read 20 books in 2023, and fill out the “20 Years, 20 Books” student reading record (see links below) instead of the usual 12 book record. The reading limits for each age group are as follows:
– Reception to year 6 – 8 books from the PRC book list, and 12 free choice titles
– Years 7 to 9 – 4 books from the PRC book list, and 16 free choice titles
– Years 10 to 12 – all 20 books are free choice

Students who complete the 20-book challenge will, at the same time, have also completed the 12 book challenge. Students will receive the usual PRC award from the PRC team. They will however, also receive a 20-book certificate printed by the school, from the PRC website.  Schools will therefore need to keep a record of which students complete the 20-book challenge. The certificate will be added to the PRC website in August 2023.

The 20-book challenge is intended to be a voluntary, enjoyable, extension of reading for pleasure for those students who choose this option.

For more information, please download the flier from the link to the right. There are also links to the updated Guidelines (including the “20 Years, 20 books” Challenge) and reading records for the 20-book challenge. The 20-book certificate is also available for download.
