Congratulations to the Yoto Carnegie Medal 2022 winner – Katya Balen with her book October,October. Not only did Katya win the Yoto Carnegie Medal, but also the Shadowers award, which is a result of all participating schools voting for their favourite. This year’s books were really good and it was a very close contest between them all.
Our EGS Yoto Carnegie Shadowers have been reading the shortlisted titles and have voted for their own EGS winner:
1st – ‘When The Sky Falls’ by Phil Earl
2nd – ‘Punching The Air’ by Ibi Zoboi and Yusef Salaam
3rd ‘Cane Warriors’ by Alex Wheatle.
Mrs Rudolph says that they had good fun debating the books. Well done boys!
