The Challenge is supported by all living Premiers, past and present

You may be wondering about the use of the apostrophe in the Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge.

In 2011, soon after Ted Baillieu was elected Premier, he invited all living former premiers of Victoria to lend their support to the Premiers’ Reading Challenge.

From that day on, the Challenge has been led by the Premier of the day, and supported by all premiers, past and present. The apostrophe was moved to reflect this change.

Each child who completes the Challenge receives a certificate bearing the signatures of the current Premier and living former premiers.
