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 9th 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 ceremony in late May.
Registration is completely free!
All groups will receive:
• A specially designed resource pack full of quizzes, creative writing, visual art activities, and research projects (digital or printed)
• Poster (if you choose a printed pack)
• Bookmarks (if you choose a printed pack)
Sign your group up to apply for some of the following free opportunities*:
• An online or in-person author or illustrator visit to your school
• A visit from a KPMG volunteer

• Attending the in-person awards ceremony in late May
*these opportunities are limited and based on need
We're keen to expand the Junior Juries even further than before and have groups from across the island of Ireland signing up. If you have any colleagues, friends or family who might be interested in the scheme with a group of young readers please forward them this email.
