Win books and Subway vouchers!
At Christchurch City Libraries we’re combining our Autumn Reading Competition with the New Zealand Post Book Awards for Children and Young Adults. The finalists in this year’s book awards are announced on Tuesday 8 April and this is also when our Autumn Reading Competition opens.
During the Autumn Reading Promotion you’ll have the chance to vote for your favourite finalist book in the New Zealand Post Book Awards for Children and Young Adults, and you’ll have the chance to win a trip to Orana Park for your class or your family.
Here on the Christchurch Kids Blog we have extra chances for you to win. You could win a set of the Junior Fiction finalist books and Subway vouchers, just for sending us your response to one of the finalist books. You could write a review, write a poem, create something and send us a photo, or you could write a story based on one of the books. Email your response to firstname.lastname@example.org or enter it as a comment on this post.

All you have to do is read six books, fill out a reading log and get a parent, teacher or librarian to register your reading. Once you’ve registered you’re in the draw for heaps of cool prizes. Find out more on the Reading Crusade website.
Each week we have a Reading Crusade Challenge for you to try and we’ll be giving away some great new books each week to Christchurch kids who comment on the blog.
