Upload your class’ #ReadLearnEmpower moment and help young Australians in need reach their full potential

All kids deserve a chance to create a bright future for themselves. We believe that a strong start in reading and education is the best way to make sure children living in poverty can reach their full potential – and that's where your class can help!

Your students are invited to take part in the inaugural ABC Reading Eggs Read, Learn, Empower event and help children from disadvantaged backgrounds get the most out of their education. It's easy for your class to make an impact. Simply upload a video showing how ABC Reading Eggs empowers your students through reading and we'll donate a 12‑month learning subscription to The Smith Family, to help support a child's education.

Plus, the class that submits the most outstanding video entry will receive $2000 worth of literacy resources from Blake Education!

This is your chance to inspire your students to take part in a wonderful cause. Together, our aim is to donate 1000x 12-month learning subscriptions to The Smith Family, to help young Australians in need create a better future for themselves through education.

Your support makes a difference
