The 3rd Reading Relay for new book readers has already been announced!

If you are between the ages of 7 and 16, you read for your own pleasure or for other purposes (or you know someone who fits this description), this is a great opportunity to spend time in the summer and get useful prizes!

Publishing Zvaigzne ABC in cooperation with Tallink announces the 3rd Reading Relay for new book readers. It aims to stimulate children's reading and interest in books. The relay runs from May 8 to July 16. You will find the regulations for the reading relay on the Zvaigzne ABC website .

To participate in the Reading Relay, you must be 7 to 16 years old, read books from the list and express your opinion on the Zvaigzne ABC website, as well as on your blog or social networks.

Evaluation takes place in 3 groups: 7-9 years, 10-13 years and 14-16 years. 10 participants will be awarded in each age group. The top 5 from each group will receive a cash prize of € 100 and the next 5 will receive a cash prize of € 50.

In each group, one participant of the Reading Relay, who will receive the highest evaluation of the jury, will also receive a TALLINK travel gift card for the sea trip on the route Riga-Stockholm-Riga (1-4 persons) with an exciting leisure and entertainment program on board.

This year, the participants of the competition also have the opportunity to receive a bonus prize: each participant who has read and viewed at least 10 works during the competition will receive 1 e-book as a gift to his / her specified e-mail after the end of the competition.

In 2015, 23 children took part in the relay, writing 145 reviews about books. In 2016, the number of participants had grown significantly: 172 children took part in the relay with almost 2,000 reviews! We hope that even more children will take part this year and we will all be able to gather together at the closing event together with Latvian writers.
