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
