Six children are selected for our shortlist by our judging panel who are made up

of ex-headmasters, teachers, literary festival organisers and book lovers. Those

six will receive a £10 book token sponsored by Yeovil Community Arts

Association. Their entries are sent to our Patron Michael Morpurgo who choses

the final two winners.

In the past, our winners have met Mr Morpurgo locally who signs a copy of the

War Horse especially for them. In 2015, Ava and Willow attended his talk in

Langport Library and in 2016 Pearl and Lottie met him at the Queens College

Quartz Festival in Taunton. Lorelei and Evie hope to meet Mr Morpurgo next

year as his public engagements have been cancelled due to ill health.

The winning work is published in the Lamp magazine and on our website
