If you’re looking for something to do these school holidays you can enter the NZ Post Children’s Book Awards competitions. There are two competitions and they are open to anyone from 0-18 years so if you have any brothers or sisters that want to enter they can too. The competitions relate to two of the finalist books:
- A Dog Like That by Janene Cooper and Evie Kemp – Take a photo or draw a picture of your dog and finish this sentence: “Everyone should have a dog like this because…” Attach your photo to an A4 sheet and add this sentence, your name, address and phone number.
- Who’s Cooking Tonight? by Clare Gourley and Glenda Gourley – Create a picture of a meal that you have cooked. You can use any materials that you like. Present your meal on an A4 sheet and add your name, address and phone number.
You can submit your entries by dropping them into Hornby Library, South Library or The Reading Bug Bookshop, or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Entries close on Wednesday 18 May and an exhibition of the finalists’ work will be displayed in South Library from 1 May-18 May.
There are lots of prizes up for grabs and everyone who enters will get invited to the prize giving on Friday 20 May at South Library. Get creative for your chance to win!
