The Chesire Schools' Book Award is an annual book prize facilitated by the Education Library Service. The award is entirely student-led, with students across the area 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.
For more information on how your school can take part in the award, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or ring us on 01606 275801.
