What is the Caucus Book Race?
Our team at The Mad Hatters are so keen to see kids - and adults- reading that we've developed a new program with prizes and incentives to encourage you!
Introducing.... The Mad Hatters 'Caucus-Book-Race', starting February 2018.
The great thing about a Caucus race is everyone wins (as long as you keep running … and in our case reading!) But there are also chances to win big prizes, challenges to read more, questionnaires to take your reading to a higher level and even special events!
Who can participate?
There are four age groups:
- Picture Book Readers (4-7)
- Junior Readers (7-10)
- Middle Readers (9-14)
- Young Adults (13-18)
- Adults (18+)
These age groups are according to our recommendation, but you can choose which group you believe best suits your child's reading level.
How it Works & Prizes
Registration is $25.00 and you'll receive a Race card to record the books you purchase. 16 books will be recommended over the year per age group.
Buy a minimum of 10 of the books in your age group to win a $25 gift voucher (and receive your $25 back at the end of the race). Get your card clicked for each purchase.
When you finish your race card it just has to be handed in to the store by the 15th of November to go in the draw for the chance to have your $25 voucher upgraded to a $150 voucher! (One prize per age group available).
Bonus separate draw: Every book you buy or questionnaire sheet you complete also gets you a separate ticket in the grand draw – drawn in November.
Members of Kids Book Club receive free entry into the Caucus Book Race with their term membership.
The Grand Prize
One winner across all the book clubs will win a gift pack of book, writing and story related merchandise, valued at more than $400. Each time you buy a book club book or hand in your questionnaire sheet you will receive one entry ticket for the grand draw.
There will be more prizes at the grand prize draw. Prizes to be announced through the year. To win the grand prize you must attend the Caucus-Book-Race celebration event: Date November 23rd.
