En bok i världsklass (approx. A World Famous Book) is an annual competition where Stockholm school classes creates pieces that consists of picture and text, related to a book the class has read. The competition is a part of the reading promoting project Barn & böcker (Children & Books).

ALMA has the privilege to have one representative in the jury for En bok i världsklass. It is always joyful to take part of all the amazing creations, and always a very hard task to choose between them.

The theme for the 2014 competition is “New worlds”. All contributions will be exhibited at the Stockholm public libraries during the spring. And in May next year, during the ALMA award week, the winners are announced. Then we’ll see what kind of new worlds the young participants have chosen to explore.

Stockholm teachers can read more about the competition, and register to participate (before January 24!) here.

Barn & böcker is a co-operation between the Education Department of Stockholm City Council, Stockholm City Library, Skansen, and the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award.
