About the Challenge application

The Challenge application is the IT software program that teachers, early childhood services and other staff members use to set up and administer the Challenge. For example, activating students and managing book reviews.

Students (and parents) can use the application to take part in the Challenge. For example, adding a book to your reading list, or writing a booking review.
