Reading and books: Readers' Cup

Readers Cup is a state wide competition that takes place in Queensland each year. It is open to students of all schools, be it public or private. The students participating each read a set of books, before they travel to a local competition where they compete against another team from a different school in a quiz, where they answer questions relating to the books that have been read during the Readers Cup challenges. The winner of the regional competition then goes on to compete in the state finals. Readers Cup is a fun and fantastic way to encourage and promote reading in students, as well as develop and encourage teamwork. Students undertaking Readers Cup get to pick which of the focus novels they wish to read, and after they have finished reading a novel they come to the Information Hub and mark it off on a chart, before picking a new novel.
