National Book Tokens launch annual £5,000 prize for
one lucky school library
National Book Token’s annual schools' competition
gives one lucky entrant the chance to win £5,000/€5,000 of National Book
Tokens for their school - enough to buy hundreds of new books for the
library. Plus the winner also receives £100/€100 of National Book Tokens
to spend on themselves.
The competition is open to anyone resident in the
UK or Ireland, with librarians, teachers, school staff and parents encouraged
to share the competition in order to raise the odds of their school being
picked as the overall winner.
Studies show that reading for pleasure doesn’t just
give children an advantage academically; it can improve their wellbeing too, so
this annual prize makes a very real difference to the lucky school library.
Entries open for this
year’s prize draw this week.
