SCBWI Australia and New Zealand SCBWI Australia supports the children's literacy charity, Room to Read. This year we are asking 50 schools to raise $365 to send a girl to school for a whole year....hence our slogan....50 Schools Supporting 50 Girls. Some schools have raised even more money, so they're sponsoring multiple girls. If you know of a school who would like to fundraise for a brilliant cause, maybe this is it!

Kids are reading, reading and yes, reading in NSW. Super proud to be a NSW Premier's Reading Challenge ambassador with Will Kostakis - Author, Deborah Abela Author and Oliver Phommavanh - last year 291,000 NSW kids read more than 8,000,000 books! Nearly 3,000 schools participated with the dedicated work of amazing school librarians.
The Premier, Gladys Berejiklian really supports it and gave out certificates to incredible student readers at the beginning of the year - I even got a certificate, even though I'm not a kid!
2018 will be an even bigger reading year!!!!!! Thankyou to the great school librarians for giving kids the opportunity to LOVE books!
The challenge closes 31st August - let's make it a mega HUGE year!
