Sign up your school and help inspire more kids to read.
This year we have fun activities, free incentives, and prizes to keep readers motivated
WHY SHOULD YOU GET INVOLVED?You know how important reading is for children, it can take them on incredible journeys of discovery, awaken their imagination, and build their confidence.
The MS Readathon has been inspiring kids to read more for 44 years and this August it will be more fun than ever before.
We have authors and ambassadors sharing what they love about the MS readathon to help inspire kids every step of the way! There are also some awesome prizes to be won throughout the month of August!
Want to inspire your students to get involved, why not show this amazing video of MS Ambassador Stephen during class or an assembly?
HELP US GET MORE KIDS READINGLast year Aussie kids read 290,000 books, this August we want more kids to read more books! Kids can read anything they want including comics, magazines, novels, or read-along audiobooks. It’s a great way to get the most reluctant kids reading.
Kids who are registered can log books through their online dashboard, earn badges, review books, and share their progress with their teacher.
All you will need to do now is register your interest. We will provide you with an update in May, so you know what to send to parents to get them to register their kids. The MS Readathon is an epic adventure that kids will love, and together we can inspire more kids to read.
If you're in Victoria, all the books read during The MS Readathon can also be used for the Premiers Reading Challenge.
Resources and teaching tools
The MS Readathon is an amazing teaching resource, which will teach your class to love reading. Reading takes kids on incredible journeys of discovery, and we’ve created plenty of exciting and downloadable resources to really ignite your students’ passion.?Whether your class is discovering their inner hero, embarking on a great quest or taking a journey beyond the stars, we have something they will love.
Concerned about your student’s privacy?
Don’t worry, so are we. Personal information is only available when you are logged in to your dashboard, and no one will be granted access to personal details. We won’t ask children to upload a photo, instead we have created 6 awesome MS Readathon avatars that will take kids on their reading journey. Any third party sites we recommend are monitored to make sure they remain child friendly, however, we can’t be held responsible for changes to content.
