All Pennsylvania PBS stations have joined together to host the first statewide summer reading contest! The Summer Reading Challenge invites all children who have just completed K-5th grade to participate. Readers will be divided into three categories: K-1, 2-3, and 4-5 graders.


Between June 1 - July 31, 2018, all readers will keep a log of books read and their time spent reading on the Summer Reading Challenge Book Log.

  • K-3 Readers must read at least one PBS- related book (such as Clifford, Cat in the Hat, Daniel Tiger, etc.)
  • Grade 4-5 Readers must also watch at least one episode from a PBS show (such as Nature, Nova, or American Experience, etc.) and read a book related to the episode topic.
  • Part of another summer reading contest? Those books count, too! Just include them on the Book Log!

Regional Recognition: The top 3 readers from each category with the most time spent reading will win passes to Hershey Park, and recognized at a WVIA event!

State Recognition: The number one readers from each grade group across all of Pennsylvania with the most time spent reading will be part of a statewide celebration!
