Kids & Teens: Take the Winter Reading Challenge & Win Cool Prizes!
This year’s theme is “Read for a Better World,” challenging youth of all ages to select thought-provoking stories that help us to better understand the world we live in.
Winter Reading Challenge takes place throughout the month of January. To participate, kids & teens (including babies) up to grade 12 must read (or be read to) for 5 hours (or 300 minutes).
