Once again, RACQ is proud to support the Premier’s Reading Challenge in 2019.  Last year we gave away over 5000 free books to Queensland school students through the Premier's Reading Challenge.

To show our support for this year’s challenge, RACQ is giving away books from the Premier’s Reading Lists to kids from Prep to Year 9.

To get your free book visit one of our stores from July 2 – 9.  But get in quick, stocks are limited and will run out fast. Limited to one book per child.

RACQ is owned by members which means we do more for our community like providing education programs about road safety and financial literacy.  We are proud to support the education of Queensland students and look forward to continuing to support Queensland schools for years to come.   See what programs are available to your school at

RACQ has been a proud sponsor of the annual Premier’s Reading Challenge, a state-wide initiative aiming to improve literacy, learning and encourage reading for pleasure. The initiative is open to all Queensland students from Prep to Year 9.

This year we're giving away free books!

About the Premier's Reading Challenge

The Premier's Reading Challenge is not a competition but a way to encourage students to develop a love of reading for life.

Through the challenge children and students are given an opportunity to develop their appreciation of the English language, and additional languages, and are encouraged to explore and enjoy a wide range of literary texts.
