The Browzly Reading Challenge Results for 2021 are here!

Hello Readers, this post brings you the results of 2021 Browzly Reading Challenge. Browzly Ltd. organizes an interschool international reading challenge every year during the school holiday months to ensure that children continue to get inspired to read. Children stay connected with their school friends in their online school reading community on Browzly so they can see what their friends are reading and get inspired to read more.

The Browzly Reading Challenge, which ran its 5th year in 2021, awards titles & certificates to children who read the most and create best text or video reviews across different age categories. To find the winning reviews, shortlisted reviews are shared anonymously to an esteemed jury of teachers and authors, who give their scores and comments, these scores are then collated to declare the final winners of the best review writers and creators. This year the theme of the challenge was ‘Travel through Books’!
