Schools Campaign

Posted on: 06/09/11 BY admin

NEW FOR 2012 – TEACHERS AND LIBRARIANS: WE NEED YOUR HELP – Tell us how you spread the Joy of Reading and win £1000 worth of books for your school!
The Siobhan Dowd Trust is proud to announce that Michael Rosen, Poet and ex-Childrens’ Laureate will be on the judging panel of our schools campaign, which is asking teachers and librarians for their ideas about how they encourage a love of books in their schools. We will use the entries to build up a database of ideas which can be shared and swapped… and the ten best or most innovative ideas will receive £1000 worth of books selected by experts as some of the titles which every school should have one (or more) copies of. All schools in the UK are welcome to take part: nurseries through to sixth form, but we’re sorry fee-paying schools are not eligible for entry. For details of how to enter (and the start of the database as we get entries), please see the section for Teachers and Librarians.
