Storylines Kids' Pick, in association with What Now

Storylines Kids' Pick Competition Background

Thise online competition encourages young TV viewers to participate in a vote for a “Kids’ Pick” from the annual Storylines Junior Fiction Notable Books list; a great way to encourage the What Now audience to read Storylines' selections for the best books published in the previous year.
What Now is a top-rating, much-loved, madcap, live two-hour show. Broadcast on Sunday mornings on TV2, its target audience is primary school children.

The competition invites young readers to choose which they think would be the best book for kids aged 8-12 years.

To enter the competition readers are invited to go to the What Now website (https://houseoffunge.tv/home), where there is a link to a review presented by an intermediate school aged reviewer of each of the year's Storylines Notable Junior Fiction Books. Viewers watch the reviews, and/or read the books themselves, and vote for their favourite book by nominating it for the Storylines Kids’ Pick Award for the year. They enter the draw for the book they would most like to read, or tell their friends about, on the What Now website. The vote is promoted live on air over three weeks, with presenters directing viewers to the What Now website and the video reviews.

All entries go into the draw to win a full set of that year's Storylines Junior Fiction Notable Books for their school.
Teachers are encouraged to watch the video reviews as a class activity or encourage their students to watch at home.

A full list of the Storylines Junior Fiction Notable Books  for each year is on the Storylines website.
