This year the Awards went out west! Thanks Blacktown City Council, Blacktown City Libraries, Duncan Ball, Ursula Dubosarsky, Anna Fienberg, Kim Gamble, Catherine Jinks, Chris Milne, Emily Rodda and all the students who attended Awards Day 2008 in Blacktown on 22nd October. It was a great day despite the weather. It is the first time that authors have had to come through snow to attend Awards Day! Check out the Winners , and here are some photographs from the day.
