Pupil library assistants shortlisted

The School Library Association has announced the final shortlist of seven pupil library assistants for the 2020 UK Pupil Library Assistant of the Year Award.

The SLA receives entries from school librarians who nominate the most amazing young people, so the judging panel has an extremely difficult time in shortlisting the finalists.

The competition for the 2020 Pupil Library Assistant of the Year has been just as fierce as ever. The judging panel had the unenviable task of bringing the long list of nominations down to the final seven.

The 2020 finalists are:​

Mariel Bastello-Kennedy of Glenthorne High School in Surrey, nominated by librarian, Lucas Maxwell

Rachel Bosworth of The King's School in Chester, nominated by librarian, Ros Harding

Beth Carson of Hornsey School for Girls in London, nominated by LRC Manager, Mary Murray

Oyindamola Owolabi of Oulder Hill Community School in Rochdale, Lancashire, nominated by LRC Manager, Karen McCarry

Aaron Prior of Abbeyfield School in Chippenham, Wiltshire, nominated by librarian, Gareth Evans

Holly Rankin of The James Young High School in Livingston, Scotland, nominated by librarian, Kateri Wilson-Whalley

Sam Steel-Jessop of University Technical College Norfolk (UTCN), nominated by librarian, Beth Settle.

The students will now submit a final task and will also meet the judges.

The winner will be announced at a ceremony in London in March 2020.
