Guardian Young Critics Competition Winner from City of London School for Girls
Year 6 City of London girl, Eloise Schaw Miller, has been named a winner in the Guardian Young Critics Competition. Entrants were required to write a book review of one of the books shortlisted for the Guardian’s Children’s Fiction Prize. Eloise’s review was on The Lost Gods by Francesca Simon. Entry is open to children up to the age of 17, and ten winners are chosen overall. At the age of 11, Eloise has done remarkably well for being selected as one of the winners of this competition.
The awards ceremony was held on the 13th November at The Guardian, where Eloise was given the opportunity to meet the authors before being presented with one of the Young Critics and Children’s Fiction Prizes, including the eight long-listed books and a book voucher of £20.
Located in the Barbican, at the heart of the City of London, ‘City girls’ are encouraged to pursue subjects and extra-curricular activities which they excel at and their academic and personal confidence is boosted by the school’s supportive environment and long-standing record of achievement.
