Well, that’s another year under our belts at the Heart of Hawick Children’s Book Awards. This was our eighth year and work has already begun for the ninth! Check out the website later on in the year to find out which books are on the shortlist!
This year’s Ceremony took place on the 14th May at the Heart of Hawick. Authors, invited guests and children from 10 schools in the Hawick area joined together for an entertaining and enjoyable afternoon. As always the main event was the announcing of the winning authors in the Book Review Competition, Junior Fiction and Picture Book categories. This year we had four authors and a publisher’s representative in attendance and vying for the top awards.
Special thanks go to: -
Tim Archbold (Master of Ceremonies) who visited schools in his own right as an author and illustrator.
The ever-dependable Norman Latimer who read all the reviews. (Review Competition Judge)
Lesley Fraser (Photographer, ILF Imaging) who captured the day’s events and all the children who read the books and voted for their favourites.
