Readers Cup – Manawatu 2021

Date : Wednesday 30th June 2021

Readers Cup is a reading competition designed for Year 9 students. Teams of four students (+one reserve) together read a set of six books, and then together work as a team in a quiz style competition against other local school teams at a fun evening event with spot prizes and entertainment with some audience participation. And of course the winning team gets a cup!

This event has been run successfully in Australia for a number of years and over the last few years in Auckland and other regional centres throughout New Zealand.

ReaLM has organised the Manawatu competition since the inaugural event in 2018 involving 14 schools from Whanganui, Manawatu and Wairarapa over the last two years, and we are excited to be organising the 2021 event.
