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 program aims to improve literacy and encourage children to read for pleasure and learning.
