2021 Premier's reading challenge

Well done to the 2021 participants

It’s great to see so many children and students involved in the challenge. Perhaps you found a new favourite book or your love of reading has grown. I hope you enjoyed this year’s challenge as much as I did.

Congratulations to the 926 schools and 357 centres who took part in the 2021 challenge, combining more than 168,000 Queensland children and students who read over 2.39 million books. What an outstanding achievement.

Certificates will arrive in time for the Premier's Reading Challenge Celebration Weeks, taking place from 1–12 November. All schools, centres and home readers are encouraged to acknowledge reading achievements during these weeks.

The Premier's Reading Challenge is an annual statewide initiative for Queensland state and non-state schools and home-educated students from Prep to Year 9, as well as children (aged up to 5 years) enrolled in an early childhood centre.

The Premier's Reading Challenge aims to improve literacy and encourage children to read for pleasure and learning.
