Warwickshire Schools Library Service

Warwickshire Year Nine Book Awards 2018!

This award is aimed specifically at Year 8 pupils who will be moving up to Year 9 in September 2018. The team at WSLS have carefully selected a long-list of 9 books which includes 9 of the most exciting books published in the past year. We hope that they will inspire, challenge and leave a lasting impression on your readers. 

As part of signing up to the awards, you will receive a Longlist Speed Dating Event Pack which will give you everything you need to host a book speed dating event in your school library with your invited students. 
At this event THEY DECIDE which 4 books will make the W9BA shortlist! They will then be given 2 months to read the shortlisted books and share their views/thoughts with fellow students, librarians, and teachers. They will then vote for their favourite book and the winner will be announced online in December 2018!
