The winning motivation for the 2024 award is as follows:

"Because the students in Read Around the World have read their way out into the world. Criss-cross, starting from the school library, equipped with their book traveler passes. In a hymn of praise to world literature, mother tongues and the joy of discovery!"

"I hope that reading gives the students increased awareness of different cultures. We are a multicultural school and live in a complex political world, and I believe that knowledge about the lives of others around the world is of great value," says Gulla Hermannsdottir.
