The Premier's Reading Challenge is not a competition but a way to encourage students to develop a love of reading for life. 

Through the challenge children and students are given an opportunity to develop their appreciation of the English language and are encouraged to explore and enjoy a wide range of literary texts.

 Children and students who complete the challenge have their efforts recognised through the receipt of a Certificate of Achievement signed by the Premier of Queensland. School and individual readers (Prep - Year 9) 

For a student to successfully complete the Premier's Reading Challenge they are required to read or experience the number of books indicated below. Experiencing a book includes classroom or at home activities such as shared reading, listening and reading along with a book, or being read to. Year level Number of books Prep - Year 2 Read or experience 20 books Years 3 - 4 20 books 

Years 5 - 9 15 books The requirement for Year 5 through to Year 9 students to read 15 books rather than 20 books acknowledges that older students are likely to select longer, more complex books that may take them longer to read. Students are encouraged to select a range of fiction and non-fiction books suited to their reading ability. 

While there is no compulsory reading list for the challenge, booklists are available to help students, teachers, parents and guardians select appropriate reading material.​
