"tXt Aksjonen" - Leseförderkampagne für Jugendliche
"tXt" for young people was initiated in 1997: it is the largest and oldest reading promotion campaign for Norwegian youth aged 13 to 16 years. With the participation of "Foreningen! Les", the campaign is funded by the Norwegian Center for Arts and Cultural Education. Every year from August to December, high school students throughout Norway are encouraged to develop a positive attitude towards reading. The teachers and students each receive paperbacks with a wide selection of excerpts from books for children, adolescents, and adults (from novels, short stories, poetry, comics, nonfiction, plays, etc.). The excerpts are selected from contemporary works by Norwegian authors as well as from translated literature. The book should serve as a supplement to the classic school reading and give the students an insight into the current variety of publications. The campaign has no requirements: the basic idea is that students freely use the book and read it whenever they want. The book is followed by a film, which forms the starting point for a competition in which the students can participate individually or in class with their submissions. In return for receiving the materials for free, teachers are asked to complete a questionnaire at the end of the campaign.
