Panel Sign Up
Join our panels
We are looking for proactive teachers, with a love of reading and the drive to make a difference. If you'd like to be involved in helping us narrow down the submissions from publishers, first to a longlist and then to our eventual shortlist in each category, and promoting the awards in our school communities then we'd love to hear from you.
In this role, you will:
Have access to a wide range of children's literature, released over the past 12 months
Attend our virtual introductory training session for panellists to find out more about our process and what we are looking for
Attend at least three virtual panel discussions to collaboratively agree a longlist and shortlist by the relevant deadlines
Help to promote the awards both within your school and more widely (your school must be signed up)
Read, read, read!
Please complete the form below to express an interest. The deadline for applications is 22 Sept 2023.
