The Million Word Challenge: Register today

Challenge your students to read millions of words!

Register today for the Million Word Challenge:

The 2012 Million Word Challenge is a literacy campaign that encourages preschool – 12th grade students to read millions of words outside of school time. Each year, hundreds of schools participate in the challenge. Join them to promote a home culture of literacy by registering today for the Million Word Challenge and launch your school’s campaign on February 1, 2012.

How Can a School/Agency Participate?

  • Register your school/agency online at today.  The Campaign  launches on February 1, 2012.  There are limited spaces available so schools/agencies will be registered on a first-come, first-serve basis.  
  • Implement the challenge in your school/agency following the guidelines. Schools/Agencies will have access to an online handbook to help with implementation.        
  • Submit the name of your school/agency’s Million Word Challenge Winner by logging back onto in April 2012.    
  • Each student winner receives a $50 gift certificate to purchase books at the Target Book Store at Festival of Books, which will take place at USC April 21 – 22, 2012. Students unable to attend Festival of Books will be able to use their gift card to purchase books at any Target store.
