Carnegie Medal Challenge!

This challenge is open to year 8 and 9 students

What is it about? 

The CILIP Carnegie Medal is awarded annually to the writer of an outstanding book written in English for children and young people. 

The Carnegie Medal was established in 1936, in memory of the great Scottish-born philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919). Carnegie was a self-made industrialist who made his fortune in steel in the USA. His experience of using a library as a child led him to resolve that “if ever wealth came to me that it should be used to establish free libraries.”
