Readers' Cup -- all you need to know

Click here for a Google Doc outlining all the information about the Readers' Cup competition, being held on May 21st this year -- at the Singapore American School.

As we're always learning and experimenting -- striving for the best experience for all our students -- each year we change a few things. 

This year, in an effort to increase participation, provide more ways to win, and encourage deeper engagement with the books, there are three separate ways a team can participate in each category:
  • the Quiz Competition, where schools can enter up to two teams per category -- and where there will be an extra round of questions based on supplementary material on one book in the category;
  • a Book Trailer competition;
  • a Design-a-Better-Book Cover competition;
The rubrics for the book trailer and the book cover contests are in the Google Doc linked above.

Register each of your teams here before 30th April.  The cost is $60 per team, to be paid on or before May 21. 

The categories are:
  • Younger Readers (6 students per team) - Year 3, 4 & 5 / Grade 2, 3 & 4
  • Older Readers (6 students per team) - Year 5, 6, 7 & 8 / Grade 4, 5, 6 & 7
  • Mature Readers (4 students per team) - Year 8+ / Grade 7+
Teams may be made up of students below the category range, but not above.

Remember: all information can be found on the Readers Cup page of the Red Dot website -- and will be reiterated at the AGM on Monday, April 27th, at Tanglin Trust School.
