Nearly 100 schools and individuals entered this year’s National Non-Fiction Day Timeline Competition and after much deliberation the judges have finally reached their decision. We’re delighted to announce the winners:
Many Congratulations to Megan Long and the Stephen Perse Foundation, Cambridge!
Megan wins a £500 cash prize and the Stephen Perse Foundation, Cambridge, an author visit and What on Earth? resources worth £1,000.
Julia Miller, Chair of the Federation of Children’s Book Groups, said “We were delighted with the number and standard of entries and the amount of time that all the entrants had put in to their work. It was a really profound question to which children have given fascinating and thought provoking responses. One of the schools really entered into the spirit and put their entries up around the school and asked other students to spot them. One parent said: “lots of enjoyment, thinking creatively”
The judges would also like to congratulate Rohan Dhillon, Emily Rowland, Claire Barcock, Lauren Nutty, Hexthorpe Primary School (Doncaster), Abbey Junior School (Reading) for two entries, one by Amelie, Samira, Anushka, Lily and a second by Isabel, Ashna, Lara, Katya and Hannah and Thomas Hardye School, (Dorset) whose entries were all highly commended.
The judges would like to thank the Science Museum and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers for their support with the new Wallbook and this competition. The cash prize (£500) for the individual category and the resources prize (worth £1,000) for the school category have been donated by What on Earth Publishing. The Federation of Children’s Book Groups is delighted to have worked with Christopher Lloyd, the founder of What on Earth Publishing to celebrate this year’s National Non-Fiction Day.
