Blue Peter Children's Book Award
11th July 2022
After 22 years, the Blue Peter Children's Book Award is to end!
In a statement, the BookTrust, which ran the Blue Peter book awards, said it was sad to announce the end of the prize, which had “showcased some amazing books, authors and illustrators” over the years.
The BookTrust said its limited resources would now be directed to disadvantaged families. Its ambition was to bring the benefits of reading to children in the greatest need and to achieve long-lasting impact by establishing reading habits and behaviours.
The last winners of the Blue Peter Children's Award were those announced in March 2022.
