New format for 2020
This year, in light of the current situation, Warwickshire SLS is running the whole Warwickshire Junior Book Award digitally. Participating schools are able to access all the author videos, book talks and resources through a password protected area of the website. New activities related to the books will be updated weekly. Pupils will vote for their favourite book towards the end of June.
Warwickshire SLS will announce the winner at the beginning of July in a digital Final Award Ceremony with more videos from the shortlisted authors. They also run competitions for the pupils alongside the Award.
The shortlisted books are as follows:
• Swimming Against The Storm – Jess Butterworth
• Runaway Robot – Frank Cottrell-Boyce
• Wildspark – Vashti Hardy
• D-Dog Day – Tom Palmer
Videos are available from all the shortlisted authors and a poster and full information is ready at: https://sls.warwickshire.gov.uk/april-2020/book-awards/warwickshire-junior-book-awards-2020-digital-awards-and-ceremony
