CBCA Book Week 2019

Saturday, 17 August, 2019 @ 12:00am Monday, 26 August, 2019 @ 12:00am

CBCA BOOK WEEK IS COMING!!!

At the IEUA WA Branch, we get more than a little excited by CBCA Book Week!

WATCH THE WINNERS ANNOUNCED IN REAL TIME – FROM 9AMWST ON FRIDAY 16 AUGUST – BY SIGNING UP TO THE FEDERATION SQUARE LIVE STREAM SERVICE HERE

Every year we eagerly await the lists of children’s books, recognised by judges as the best in their category – and pity them for the hard task at deciding the winners. We can relate, because it’s equally difficult to choose the winners of the Annual IEUA WA Branch CBCA Book Week Competition!

We’re delighted by the creativity and flair on show in your CBCA Book Week entries and we know that other IEU members love seeing them too!

With this year’s theme, Reading is my Secret Power, we’re looking forward to seeing how your school will be turning that concept into reality!

To win a set of shortlisted titles from one of the six categories in this year’s CBCA list, send photos of your school’s Book Week displays to communications@ieuwa.org.au

Get your entries in by Wednesday 28 August!

Check our website here and Facebook page to see your entries online!
