Register for the Cheshire Schools' Book Award 2022

The Cheshire Schools' Book Award is back! Following on from the 2020 award, where the top prizes were given to Holly Jackson and Catherine Bruton, we are pleased to announce that registration for the 2022 award is now open.

The award is entirely student-led, with students nominating and voting for their favourite books. All secondary schools who subscribe to ELS are welcome to join in. Participation is free, fun, and it can help promote reading for pleasure within your school, encouraging lively and positive dialogue amongst students and staff.

More than ever, we want the award to be a celebration of reading, and the unique fellowship that can develop between readers.
