The Booktrust is offering teenage reading groups in libraries a fantastic opportunity to report on this year’s Booktrust Teenage Prize. It would be great if you could pass on this information to any colleagues running teenage reading groups in your libraries.
To enter the competition, reading groups just need to tell us, in 300 words, why their reading group should be ‘reporters’ on this year’s Teenage Prize for Groupthing. The reporting will take place from September to November.
The winning reading group will receive a flip cam which can be used to produce short videos of reviews of the books, debates, and events to tie in with the Prize. They will also receive one set of books and three sets of tickets to attend the awards ceremony in November in London.* The videos will be shown on Groupthing and the Booktrust website.
Please submit your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Friday 20 August.
The winning reading group will be announced the week beginning 23 August, and the flip cam and books will be delivered to the reading group in time for the shortlist announcement on 7 September.
There will also be a set of books for the runners-up.
*Please note that travel expenses to the awards ceremony are not included.
