CHOSEN Generation Youth Ministry invites you to join our Winter Reading Challenge from November 7, 2021 to February 6, 2022. This year’s challenge encourages youth (6th – 12th grade) to embrace reading and literacy as tools of liberation by reading at least one age-appropriate book a month from our Justice Reding List. Youth, parents, and the Friendship West community can support our challenge by donating books to our Justice Book Drive. All book collected during our Justice Book Drive will be donated to support incarcerated youth and encourage them to reclaim their lives through literacy.

The Winter Reading Challenge runs from November 7th to February 6, 2022. You can join at any time.
The goal is to read at least ONE book from our Justice Reading List every month. It can be an eBook, audiobook, or print – your choice. Remember, as long as you are reading you are growing.
If one book from our Justice Reading List every month is not enough, you can read more. Do you think you can read 2 books a month? What bout 4? We encourage you to read as much as you can…
Win prizes by writing and submitting at least one, 1-2 page essay based on CHOSEN’s universal writing prompt. Submissions should be made to
by Friday, February 4, 2022. The best essays in each age group will win prizes for creativity and command of argument.
Make creative social media posts during the Reading Challenge (post your favorite quote, make a video of you reciting lines from the text, etc.). Use #CHOSENWinterReadingChallenge on social media.
Youth, parents, and the Friendship West community can support our challenge by donating books to our Justice Book Drive.
