Children's Books Ireland are delighted to announce the Junior Juries’ scheme as part of the KPMG Children’s Books Ireland Awards is open for sign-up! Junior Juries are a unique programme for schools, libraries and book clubs, designed to encourage reading for pleasure and appreciation for a wide variety of books for all ages.   
Participating classes and book clubs make their own selection of suitable titles from the KPMG Children’s Books Ireland Awards shortlist, which will be announced on the 8th of March. We will provide your group with an activity pack so participants can engage with the chosen books by taking part in quizzes, debates, discussions, research projects, creative writing and visual art activities which will enhance their reading experience. At the end of this process each group is asked to collectively score the books they have read. Children’s Books Ireland will collate these scores to determine the winner of the Junior Juries’ Award, which will be presented by Junior Jury members at the official prize-giving online ceremony in May.  
Registration is completely free and you can indicate your interest in receiving books, having an artist/author online school visit in the form.
