Queensland students who love to read are being offered the chance to win one of two writing workshops for their school by award-winning Australian author Sue Whiting.
They can also put their school in the running to win one of eight $500 book vouchers, which are included in the prize pool offered in the QSuper Top 5 Book Challenge, part of the Premier’s Reading Challenge. The competition is open until 25 August.
Queensland students can enter by nominating their top five favourite books
We partner with the Premier’s Reading Challenge as part of our commitment to the promotion of literacy and education, and to supporting the important work of Queensland teachers.
Ms Whiting is the author of wide variety of children’s and young adult books, including the bestselling Missing, the acclaimed The Book of Chance, and a number of Children’s Book Council of Australia notable books.
Her latest works include Pearly and Pig and the Lost City of Mu Savan and Tilda.
As a storyteller, workshop leader and schools performer Ms Whiting has informed, inspired and entertained thousands of kids across the country. Before becoming an author, she was a primary school teacher.
She believes reading today gives children the best chance of perhaps one day becoming award-winning author themselves.
Entries close on 25 August with judging to take place from 28 August to 1 September. Winners will be announced in early September with the workshops to take place in term four of the school year.
