Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge Student Activity


PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5, 6–8, 9–12

Activity Type

  • Student Contests

Welcome to the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge! This year’s theme is “A Magical Summer of Reading!” and it’s all about encouraging students to be the best independent readers they can be. Along with their own personal summer reading minute tracker, students can gain access to 18 Harry Potter-themed reading activities, including games, quizzes, and book excerpts.

The school in each state with the most minutes read will be recognized as “Best in State” and will receive a special kit that includes a school plaque, congratulatory banner, student certificates, and other items that can be used to host a literacy celebration. The winning schools will also be featured in the 2019 Scholastic Book of World Records.
