Another year of the Victorian Premiers' Reading Challenge has come to a close.

This year, almost 113,000 school students and young Victorians joined in the fun and completed the challenge.

Together, they read more than 4.3 million books - an incredible achievement.

As the patron of this year's Challenge, and on behalf of former Premiers, I'd like to congratulate everyone who took part.

Thanks also to the parents, families, teachers, early childhood professionals and librarians for their ongoing support.

Without your efforts, this Challenge simply wouldn't be the success it is today.

I congratulate you all on your accomplishments - and look forward to seeing you in 2020.
