Now into my third year on the YABBA Council, and my second as President I’m incredibly proud of the work the YABBA Council do in giving children a voice in the Australian book industry.
As well as donating my time to coordinate the YABBA Awards, I also financially support YABBA with the printing and distribution of their shortlist poster each year. It is my great honor to help such a worthwhile cause, especially one that links so closely with the work I do.
On 28 October 2014, the YABBA Awards Ceremony held at Hillcrest Christian College in Clyde North, Victoria was attended by 300 students and 25 Authors and Illustrators. The Awards Ceremony day is truly a fun and exciting day, the students in attendance see the awards being presented and then have an hour or so of gathering all the students autographs.
