Your Challenge

Welcome to the Premier’s Reading Challenge. This is your chance to enjoy reading 12 books in a year and to receive an award. If you keep going, you can earn all 14 awards by the time you finish high school.

The Challenge Guidelines explain what you need to do. Ask your teacher if you can get involved. You will read your books, fill in a student record and return it to your teacher. Then, sometime in November, your award will arrive at your school.

Completing the Challenge is something to be proud of – it’s quite an achievement reading those books each year!
