Victorian Premiers' Reading Challenge

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

The 2017 Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge is now closed.

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.
