This summer term, we're asking children to send us their own dazzling National Book Token designs. Whether it's your school crest doodled in ink, a pencil drawing of the entire class, or something completely different, we want to see it all!
Six weekly winners throughout May and June will get their artwork made into up to 35 gift cards, each loaded with £10/€10 to spend on brilliant books – that's one for you, and one for everyone else in your class!
The closing date for entries is Sunday 13th June 2021.
National Book Tokens have been inspiring booklovers since 1932. We work with our charity partners at World Book Day, Book Aid International and Read for Good – and through the thousands of people who give National Book Tokens as gifts and rewards each year – to encourage a lifelong love of reading among children everywhere.
Accepted in thousands of bookshops and online, National Book Tokens are the perfect way to reward and inspire.
We were blown away by the talent on show in 2020! Each winning young designer and their classmates received a £10/€10 National Book Token – emblazoned with the winning artwork – to inspire them to choose their next favourite book from their local bookshop.
Congratulations to Kate, age 7, from Mile End School in Aberdeen! The happy, smiling faces of the children she's drawn enjoying reading time with their teacher make us smile too. She and all the children in her class have each won a £10 National Book Tokens gift card featuring her colourful design!
