Beckfoot Oakbank Carnegies
The Yoto Carnegie Medal for Writing is awarded by children’s librarians for an outstanding book written in English for children and young people.
The young people taking part are known as ‘shadowers’ as they ‘shadow’ the judging process for the Yoto Carnegie Medals; they read, discuss and review the books on each shortlist and vote for their favourites to win the Shadowers’ Choice Awards. The 2023 winner was "The Blue Book of Nebo" by Manon Steffan Ros.
At Beckfoot Oakbank our school library has a long history of inviting students to shadow the Awards and this year was no exception with a group of students from Year 7 to Year 10 working hard to read the shortlisted books, review them and finally voting for their favourite.
We have compiled their work into a magazine to showcase their efforts and are very proud of all their hard work! You can download a copy of the magazine via the link below.
