Redbridge Book Award • Vision RCL

Redbridge Book Award

Each year, the Vision Schools’ Library Service run the Redbridge Children’s Book Award.

There are two categories:

  • The Children’s Book Award for school students aged 10 to 12 years old
  • The Teenage Book Award for school students aged 13 to 16 years old

The awards process starts in September and ends in June. We invite all schools in the Borough to take part in the awards and vote for their favourite children and teen books published in the UK in the current year. There is an opportunity for students to get signed copies of the shortlisted titles and meet the authors whose books they have voted for.

The award is continually evolving and each year builds on experiences from the last. The first year the awards took place, just 4 schools took part. There are now approximately 15 secondary schools and 10 primary schools taking part.

Alongside the Book Award we also run a short story and poetry competition in both age categories.
