Lennox Author Award

Lennox Award ceremony

We were delighted to host the 2015 Lennox Author Award  last week. On the 13th of May children from Cockenzie, West Barns, Saltoun, Dunbar, Law and Sanderson’s Wynd primary schools came together to share their ideas about books they had read by this year’s authors. We enjoyed drama, book reviews, a Powerpoint, animations and a Scratch animated quiz all put together by some very talented young people. There was a Question and Answer session with the authors organised by pupils from Law Primary.

Authors Paul Dowswell and Marcia Williams attended the event and were impressed by the children’s presentations. Voting to decide the winner of the Lennox Award was very close this year and every vote counted. We were pleased to find out that Marcia Williams won the well-deserved award for 2015, but to us all of the authors are winners as we have enjoyed fantastic books from them all!

The book review competition was also very close and we were pleased to find out that Euan Thornton had won! As his prize he will choose an author to visit the school! Congratulaltions to Euan and well done to everyone who submitted a book review this year. You can see them all here. (Scroll up the page to read them all.)
