What is Adi's Reading Challenge?
In 2012 we founded Adi’s Reading Challenge in honor of our former student, Aditya Srinivasan, as a way to encourage boys to read highly acclaimed, newly published books. We try to predict which books will win ALA Youth Media Awards, such as the Coretta Scott King Award, the Pura Belpré Award, the Sibert Award, and most especially, the Newbery Medal. The challenge takes place every year from early October to late January.
Who Can Take Part?
Boys in 4th grade and up are invited to take part.
Participation is voluntary, but most boys read at least a few of the titles in our challenge.
