Victorian Premiers' Reading Challenge

Welcome to the Premier' Reading challenge. Inspiring children and young people to read more books. 

The Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge encourages children to read a set number of books over the year and record their efforts online.

The Challenge for schools is now open and will run until Friday 8 September 2017.

Since the Challenge began 13 years ago, more than 2.2 million students have turned the pages of nearly 42 million books.

Regular reading from an early age is vital for success at school and has lifelong benefits. The Challenge encourages children to read more and promotes a love of reading, supporting the Education State target to have more students reaching the highest levels of achievement in reading.
