The Book Challenge is an annual friendly competition among SMART sites to get the most books into the hands of kids by donating to SMART. All funds raised during the Book Challenge are used to purchase giveaway books for each volunteer’s SMART site and other SMART sites in the local community.

Your support is essential to our ability to bring a love of books and reading to Oregon kids.

  • $40 = 14 books (books for one SMART student for one year)
  • $80 = 28 books (books for two SMART students for one year)  

Sites are divided by size (small and large) and the site with the highest percentages of volunteer participation in the Challenge in each category also receive an additional book giveaway day for the students in their program. Weekly updates of how your site is doing will be available beginning next week!

For the first time, we’re also inviting the wider community to join in the fun! Click here for sample email and social media posts to share with your friends, families and neighbors. Donations made by non-volunteers will count toward the participation rate of the site they designate (sites will be able to receive over 100% participation).

Every dollar donated to the 2019 Book Challenge will be generously matched, up to $50,000 statewide, by Fred Meyer and Scholastic.
