Champion Shorts

Hi fellow CBCA members,

This year we congratulate the winners of the 2013 Champion Shorts competition. Keely, Paris, Brooke, Scarlett and Teresa, from St Mary‟s College, Adelaide, based their entry on the book entitled „The Terrible Suitcase‟ by Emma Allen.

We greatly appreciate the efforts of all the students who entered our competition and shared their talent and inspiration.

This year saw students' entries move beyond the book trailer to give a more considered and critical response to the text they chose.

Feedback from members has been listened to. We will be launching this competition at the same time as the announcement of the 2014 Shortlisted Books. This will give students an extra term to complete their entry.

For classroom teachers this competition links directly to the Australian Curriculum English as well as the General Capabilities.

I am looking forward to the fabulous entries we will see next year.

kind regards

Linda Guthrie

SA Branch Vice President
