Changes to CICBA Timetable
12 MAY 2020
Voting to be extended until 27 November 2020
In response to the ongoing closure of Channel Island schools, the CICBA has decided to extend the voting deadline until Friday 27 November 2020.
This extension will give Channel Island children more opportunity to engage with the award and gain greater access to the shortlisted titles and take part in discussions and reading groups.
The announcement of the winning book and the award ceremony were scheduled to take place in September 2020 but the ongoing situation will be monitored and a new date will be announced as soon as possible.
The Guille-Allès Library and Jersey Library have made digital copies of the shortlist available across their eBook platforms and further resources and activities can be found on the CICBA website.
The 2020 Channel Island Children’s Book Award is proudly sponsored by Ravenscroft.
