Siobhan Dowd Trust Competition

Www Siobhandowdtrust Com Teachers and Librarians 009From January to July 2012 the Trust are running a special project for schools.  Tell them what you do to spread a joy of reading in your school…and win £1000 worth of books!

Michael Rosen, Poet, Performer ex-Children’s’ Laureate, and Reading enthusiast-extradinaire has agreed to be a judge in our new campaign to build a data-base of good ideas for all teachers to contribute to, use, build upon and be inspired by.

Visit the website for Michael’s 20 tips for building a book loving school, but we’d like to know about any of your initiatives which have encouraged reading and books within your school. All we need is a very brief email (see form below) and you could be one of 10 winning schools. The winning initiatives will be picked by a panel of Education and Childrens’ Books experts.

The winning schools will receive books suitable for your pupil’s age group selected by Julia Eccleshare (Author of 1001 Children’s Books: You Must Read Before You Grow Up) and Daniel Hahn (who has edited the Ultimate Book Guides for Children and Young Adults and is currently compiling the new Oxford Companion to Children’s Literature). The competition will end on August 1st 2012, and the books will be sent out during the Autumn term.
