It’s back! Our popular competition to design a National Book Token receives thousands of entries from children and young people of all ages every year. There are heaps of National Book Tokens to be won and one lucky winner’s design will be turned into a real National Book Token gift card and distributed to hundreds of bookshops nationwide in time for Christmas.
Enter this year by getting your pupils to design a book-themed National Book Token using the template here. A panel of judges will select a winner and runner-up in each of three age categories: up to 8 years, 9-12 years and 13-16 years.
