The Reading Hack Call for Ideas is open! We’re looking for six groups of young people (aged 13-24) to come up with a project or idea that will encourage other young people to read more.
The solution can be anything that your group believe will encourage more young people to read for pleasure. It could be an event, an app, a short film, an anthology or something else entirely. We’re looking for something exciting and fun that will appeal to those who don’t find reading enjoyable, or don’t see its value.
The solution must:
- Involve as many other young people as possible
- Be shareable online in some way (this can be as a blog or video if you run an event)
The deadline for ideas is Monday 20th February 2017. A panel of young people will then review all the applications and choose five groups to receive up to £750 to make their idea reality. These groups will then have until Monday 31st July 2017 to complete or carry out their idea.
