Kernow Youth Book Award 2015

On Wed 29th April 10 of the 14 KYBA judges took part in the 8th annual book awards.  It was again held at the Keay Theatre, St Austell College.

After an unprecedented beginning – we had to ask several adults to leave the theatre as we were very over subscribed.  I believe the KYBA team (of which I am one) had become victims of their own success.  The Kernow King then took charge and smoothly started the proceedings.

Each of the 6 shortlisted books was presented by students from participating Cornish schools.  Starting with our favourite

  • ‘After Tomorrow’ by Gillian Cross (Redruth School) in front of Gillian who emailed to say “It was a real pleasure being there and I loved the presentations and all the enthusiasm of the students.”
  •  ‘Warp’ by Eoin Colfer (Hayle School)
  • ‘Split Second’ by Sophie McKenzie (Poltair & Helston Schools) and this year’s Winner!
  • ‘Last Chance Angel’ by Alex Gutteridge (Humphrey Davy -the winning presentation- & Callington Schools)
  • ‘Hello Darkness’ by Anthony McGowan who was blown away by Saltash School.
  • ‘Geek Girl’ by Holly Smale (Budehaven & Penryn Schools)

So, another enjoyable afternoon with pasties, bookshop, author speeches and stunning presentations was had by all.
