Students from Year 8 and 9 took part in this year’s Amazing Book Awards, winning two prizes.
The students read all of the shortlisted books and then voted on the overall winner; Carla Spradbury and her novel, The 100 Society.
Year 8 pupils Anna Sacks and Emily Cunningham won a prize of their own, providing the winning entries in the photographic competition, Get Caught Reading. Anna’s shot saw her in the cockpit of an aeroplane with her book and Emily’s featured her reading while finishing the 5K Tunbridge Wells Parkrun. They received their award from host and previous winner Juno Dawson.
The event saw four of the shortlisted authors introduce their books and answer questions prepared by the young audience.
Bennett students then had the opportunity to meet the authors and get their books signed by the panel.
