NSW Premier's Reading Challenge

The Premier’s Reading Challenge aims to encourage a love of reading for enjoyment and enrichment in students, and enable them to experience quality literature. It is not a competition but a challenge to each student - to read, to read more and to read more widely.

The Challenge involves nearly 300,000 students and more than 2,400 government, non-government and home schools. The NSW Premier’s Reading Challenge booklists open doors to a rich collection of children’s literature representing a range of books including fiction, non-fiction, picture books, poetry and drama, and include a wide variety of Australian authors.

The 2018 Challenge has closed. If you have a completed Student Reading Record that has not been validated, please email the PRC team ASAP with details of the records to be validated. If you have INCOMPLETE entries that require additional book entries and validation, you are required to complete the Post-Challenge Validation process. This requires Principal application and authorisation.
