The Reading Games 2022 date is set!

We are happy to announce the Reading Games will be held on Saturday, April 23, 2022 at O’Neill Middle School. Registration will open soon, so begin to form your teams now!

The Reading Games is a free and fun reading competition for District 58 students in grades 3-8. The mission of the Reading Games is to encourage reading for kids in Grades 3- 8, expose kids to different genres, series, authors, and topics, as well as foster teamwork and responsibility. All this occurs as teams of 5 - 8 kids led by a parent or other volunteer community member prepare for a fun competitive day of book trivia!

Students form teams of 5-8 students and collaborate to read 12 books from one of two book lists. Lists are online now!

List 1 is geared for readers in third and fourth grade.

List 2 is geared for readers in fifth and sixth grade. Students in seventh and eighth grade who want to play should read from List 2.

Like prior years, The Reading Games hopes to accommodate every team that wants to participate and registers during the registration period. Exact times for the games will be determined once registration is complete.

Each team will need an adult team leader to register the team for the event, act as a point person for all communications and help their team prepare for The Games competition day. In addition, each team will be asked to send a volunteer (aged 16 years or older) to The Games to help run the day.

More information can be found at and registration details will be announced soon. Good luck to our readers as they uncover the magic within these books!
