Warwickshire Year 9 Book Award 2017: New format announced, sign-up now!

We are incredibly excited to announce the LONGLIST for this years Warwickshire Year 9 Book Award...



We have been working hard at WSLS to devise a new format for the W9BA17. The will offer new opportunities for students to get involved in the awards. Our aim is to enable students to have greater ownership and make the award more interactive and accessible for schools.

The award is aimed at Year 9 students and the team at WSLS have carefully selected a Longlist of 9 books, which we think are some of the most exciting books published in the past year. We have chosen a variety of books that we hope will inspire, excite and challenge your students, leaving a lasting impression on your readers.


Students will be invited to attend a Longlist Speed Dating event at WSLS on Wednesday 20th September 2017 where THEY DECIDE which 4 books will make the W9BA shortlist!


Students will have 2 months to read the shortlisted books and share their views/thoughts with fellow students, librarians, teachers and the authors.  They will vote for their favourite book and the winner will be announced online in December 2017! There will also be competitions for them to enter running alongside the Award.

If you would like your school to take part in the awards, or would like a little more information please fill out our online form.
