The TSBA aims to celebrate quality writing in both new and older fiction. The TSBA Committee determines a theme each year and shortlists books nominated by librarians. Any interested secondary school may participate. Children from the ages of 11 to 14 read the shortlisted books during the Autumn and Spring terms and cast their votes in February to determine the winner. There is also a companion reading list on the year’s chosen theme for older readers call Trinity Plus. Student competitions for the best book reviews and best creative response run alongside the main book awards; these can be in response to books on the shortlist or Trinity Plus and are judged by the TSBA Committee.
