How can I get involved?

Publishers & Authors

If you would like to submit a book for SCBY then please read the criteria and if the book meets these guidelines then post a copy of the book to the address below:

Angela Foster
Stockton Children’s Book of the Year
Stockton Central Library
Church Road
Stockton-on-Tees
TS18 1TU

Please make sure that the parcel is clearly labelled on the front with Stockton Children’s Book of the Year and with a letter inside stating that you would like it submitted for the award with your contact information.

Schools & Teachers

If you are a teacher or school that would like to be involved then please look at the timeline as this will let you know where we are in the project and that you can be involved from September. Please note that SCBY is only open to schools in Stockton-on-Tees and for students in Year 5, 6 and 7. For further information contact Angela Foster on angela.foster@stockton.gov.uk or 01642 528501.

Children & Parents /Carers

If you are a child or parent and would like to get involved then please speak to a teacher at your school and show them the website so they can show an expression of interest to be involved for the next year in September. Alternatively the current shortlist is always available to borrow from the library so you can still read the shortlist and decide who you think should win or look at the past winners to see which book you might like to try next.
