Can you believe it? It’s already time to nominate books for the Buckeye Children’s and Teen Book Awards. http://www.bcbookaward.info/ Remember, for this award books are both nominated and voted on by children in the state of Ohio. The nominations will be open until March 10th so start talking with your students and patrons now and encourage them to nominate books that have been published in the last two years, 2012 and 2013 (original publishing date, not just paperback copyright date). The grade level categories are: K – 2, 3 – 5, 6 – 8, and Teen. What a great way to encourage ownership in reading choices! Can’t wait to see what our students put forward this year!
