#MyCKGShelfie – Book Giveaway


As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting creativity and literacy, ALCS is proud to be sponsoring the Yoto Carnegie and Kate Greenway Awards for the 15th consecutive year. We’re excited to bring you the #MyCKGShelfie book giveaway for a second year.

Shadowing group leaders, parents and carers – we want to see your childrens’ shelves and all their favourite books. We’ll be judging your shelfies based on their uniqueness so this is your chance to get creative and show off your interior design skills too. Librarians and teachers, shelfies from your classroom or library are also welcome.

How to enter

Simply post a picture of your shelfie using the hashtag #MyCKGShelfie by Wednesday 25 May and you will be in with a chance of winning a copy of each of the shortlisted books. Discover the 16 shortlisted books you could win here.

Let’s celebrate some of those favourite stories and magical adventures that are sitting on our kids’ shelves.
