The 2020 Premier's Reading Challenge has now ended. Schools, centres and parents/carers of individual readers are encouraged to hold celebration events to acknowledge student reading achievements. Certificates have been sent out in time for Celebration Weeks, 2–13 November.

Congratulations to the 905 schools and 318 centres who took part in the 2020 challenge, combining more than 161,000 Queensland children and students reading 2.23 million books. What an achievement!

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.
