The Reading Hack Call for Ideas Application Form

Do you have a big idea to get other people reading more? We're looking for creative, ambitious youth-led projects that will help more young people to enjoy reading, or make reading more accessible. Fill in the application form below to share your idea. All applications will be reviewed by our panel of young judges, and we'll get back to you in March to let you know if you've been successful. 
 
Please make sure your group is eligible before you apply. You'll need to be a group of young people (or one young person) aged 13-24, have a project lead (age 18+) and be part of a named organisation with a bank account. Your event, project or activity needs to be aimed at other young people, and to take place before July 2018. You can check your group is eligible and get more information about the application process here.
 
We want to keep this process as inclusive as possible. If your group is unable to make an application via SurveyMonkey, please email readinghack@readingagency.org.uk or call 020 7324 2551 and let us know. We are happy to make adjustments as needed.
