From academic year 2019- 2020 these are: 3-6+, 7-10+ and 11-14+. All students taking part are eligible to vote, and the winning authors of the student votes are honoured at the prestigious UKLA Book Awards Ceremony, part of the UKLA International Conference. Participating HE tutors and students are invited to this ceremony.
