Shortlist for High-School Pupils’ Favourite Choice Award 2023 announced
The shortlist of novels in contention for the Prince Pierre of Monaco Foundation High-School Pupils’ Favourite Choice Award 2023 was recently presented to Year 11 (Seconde) pupils from Lycée Albert I, Lycée FANB and Monaco’s Vocational and Catering School.
Established in 2007 in collaboration with the Department of Education, Youth and Sport, the prize is awarded by a jury of pupils, who make their decision from a selection of first novels. The award attracts a prize of €6,000 from the Princess Grace Foundation. The aim of this educational project is to increase pupils’ awareness of contemporary literature.
Under the guidance of their French teachers and as part of the “Reading, Writing, Publishing Today” section of the literature programme, throughout the year the jury of pupils takes part in a variety of events (a debate, a meeting with the authors, a round table, etc.) in order to select the winner.
The next step will come in early 2023, when the pupils will gather to argue for the shortlisted books that they believe should be included in the final selection.
