#IReadYA: Challenges and Prizes!

Posted on: May 18, 2015


Calling all readers of young adult literature!

Celebrate young adult literature this week
with Scholastic’s #IReadYA.

All this week, starting today and ending on Friday, Scholastic will hold daily challenges in support of young adult literature. These daily challenges range from describing a YA book only using words that start with the same letter (e.g. Harry helps Hogwarts, hefting horcruxes), to sharing YA reaction videos/memes.

Each day this week, ten entrants who complete the daily challenge will be randomly selected to win a #IReadYA prize pack worth $145. The prize pack includes a pin, tote, tumblr, and even young adult books.

Challenges include:

  • Day 1 – #IReadYA Picture Share
  • Day 2 – #YAlliteration Challenge
  • Day 3 – WOW, Help share Fall 2015 & Spring 2016 Books
  • Day 4 – YA #TBT Instagram Challenge
  • Day 5 – #IReadYA Book Recommendations


A Grand Prize will also be awarded to one user who submits their #IReadYA Reaction video or animated GIF Tumblr post. The reaction can be to anything YA from a plot twist, to an adored character, to the final book in a trilogy. The Grand Prize is 10 books from your TBR (To Be Read) list, up to $250 in value!

Also, favorite young adult authors will be participating right alongside you with impromptu Twitter chats, Tumblr posts, and other social media.
