Following approximately four minutes of conversation, a bell is rung, the men proceed to the next lady, and another four-minute speed date begins. Following each speed date, participants mark on a card whether they would have an interest in meeting their date again.
If a mutual interest is noted, meaning that the person you have picked has also picked you, the organizers provide each party with the other's contact information (email and nickname). You arrange to meet and start getting to know each other.
The winning author for this award is chosen by students in Year 7 and 8 from schools across the county, who all came together for the final celebration in March.
Both the winner, Matt Dickinson, and runner up Geraldine Mc Caughrean attended the awards ceremony at Avon Valley School and spoke to the pupils about the joys of reading and writing books.
