    SCD Pageturners Celebrate Carnegie Awards


    The SCD Pageturners have been meeting weekly since March to read, write reviews, and discuss this year's nominations for the Carnegie Medal for Writing.

    Thanks to the support of the PA, we were able to run one of the largest shadowing groups we have ever had, with participants from Years 7, 8, and 9.

    As always, the Carnegie shortlist was filled with thought-provoking books, including verse literature and novels that explore contemporary themes. The photograph shows our students gethering together for the final time this year on June 20th to watch a live stream  of the awards ceremony to see if our favorite book had won.  This year's winners were:

    • Carnegie Medal for Writing: awarded to the verse novel by Joseph Coelho.
    • Shadowers' Choice Award: voted for by all the Carnegie Shadowers across the UK, awarded to by Tia Fisher, a verse novel about county lines.

    We look forward to shadowing the 2025 Carnegie Awards and some new book awards next year in the LRC. Students should check the LRC digital screen for information on this and the teen book club in September.
