Sun Project: Shadow Judging

May 5, 2022

Chisholm College Library’s application to the Children’s Book Council of Australia’s (CBCA) Sun Project: shadow judging was successful! As such, we will receive funding of a $120 voucher to purchase shortlisted books and a $600 voucher to support a writer and/or illustrator workshop.

This means we are now looking for up to 10 keen readers who are prepared to:

  • Read all six shortlisted books in the Older Readers category from the 2022 CBCA Book of the Year Awards
  • Discuss the titles against the CBCA Book of the Year Awards criteria
  • Share a creative response
  • Vote for a winner

Expressions of interest from students who wish to participate are now being taken at the Library desk. 

Titles in the Older Readers category are:

Girls in Boys’ Cars by Felicity Castagna

How to Repaint a Life by Steven Herrick

Tiger Daughter by Rebecca Lim

The Boy from the Mish by Gary Lonesborough

Terciel and Elinor by Garth Nix

Sugar Town Queens by Malla Nunn

Note: books in this category are for mature readers and some may deal with particularly challenging themes including violence and suicide. Parental guidance is recommended.
