The Hampshire Book award is an annual award for the best paperback fiction title published in the previous year for the 11-14 age group, running from the spring into the summer term.

The judges of the award are Year 8 students from participating schools. The students are involved in every stage of the award, from selection of both the long- and shortlists to the final vote for the winning author.

The shortlist has six titles.

Aims of the award:

      • To promote the enjoyment of reading

      • To foster a reading ethos within the school

      • To draw attention to the most rewarding and accessible fiction for the age group

      • To challenge students to critically assess books and to make a reasoned argument in group discussions.
