Lancashire Book of the Year
We are now a participating school in 'Lancashire Book of the Year'. A student judging panel will attend meetings with representatives from LCC libraries and publishers, not to mention the prestigious Award's Ceremony in July 2018 where the top ten writers will be in attendance.
Thank you to 9J1 and some volunteers from Year 8 for beginning to read some of the nominees already!
Lancashire Book of the Year is the longest running young people's regional book award in the country.
The award remains one of the few book awards in which young people themselves are solely responsible for choosing both the shortlist and the overall winning book.
The award is voted for by Year 9 students in high schools around the county. Each school is given a collection of books, submitted by publishers as being the best books they had produced for the 12-14 age group. The young people then read and shortlist the books before choosing the overall winner.
