Hello to our Shadow Judges for 2021! You will shortly receive the first of a fortnightly Shadow Judging Bulletin which is being sent to the judging groups to share communication about the program. Here’s a snapshot from it.
The shortlisted books have been dispatched to your school or library and you will be notified if some titles are yet to be supplied.
Those of you judging the Picture Book of the Year category will be sent a special ‘ideas’ document with wonderful discussion prompts for this category, developed especially for the CBCA Shadow Judging program by Teacher Librarian Jo Panckridge. Remember you have complimentary access to Story Box Library if you are judging this category as well.
We are also in the process of organising the guest authors and illustrators who will be available to give an online presentation to your group. Once that is confirmed, you will be put in touch with the creator to arrange a mutually agreeable time and date. CBCA VIC Branch will cover the cost of this presentation.
Enjoy the coming weeks and happy reading!
