Surrey team claims Reading Link Challenge championship

Surrey Libraries was thrilled to host the Reading Link Challenge Grand Challenge on Wednesday,
May 10 at Shannon
Hall. The Human Books team from George Greenaway Elementary in Cloverdale won
the competition and were named the 2023 Reading Link Challenge champions at the event.

The Reading Link Challenge is a program delivered in partnership between Surrey Libraries, Coquitlam
Public Library, Fraser Velley Regional Library, New Westminster Public Library, North Vancouver City
Library, and schools in the communities served by those library systems.

The Reading Link Challenge makes reading fun for children in Grades 4 and 5. Participating children read
six preselected books and answered trivia questions about those books in teams of 6 during
successively difficult trivia challenges.

Teams first had to compete against other teams at their school. The competition then moved onto
winning school teams challenging each other at their local library and in larger communities, at the
community challenge competitions. The Grand Challenge was the final stage of this journey, bringing
together 2 teams from each library system to compete for the title of Reading Link Challenge 2023

Two teams from schools in New Westminster clinched the second and third spots in the competition.
Team Turtle from Skwo:wech Elementary placed second and the Hurricanes from Herbert Spencer
Elementary placed third.

This was the first inperson Reading Link Challenge Grand Challenge since 2019. Surrey last hosted the
competition in 2017.
