Hundreds of children and young people around the city take part in the Sheffield Children's Book Award each year through local schools and libraries.
The Award ceremony will be held at the Crucible Theatre on the 12th November 2015. The event will be attended by many of the shortlist authors, illustrators and publishers. Schools who subscribe to the Schools Library Service can reserve seats for the ceremony by emailing and requesting an application form from firstname.lastname@example.org.
