January 11-February 22
It’s that time of year again! Along with the change in calendars comes the time when the teens of Rhode Island get a chance to pick the book they think is best they have read, from a list selected by teachers, public librarians, and school library media specialists. That’s right! It is election time for the 2016 Rhode Island Teen Book Award!
Where can our teens in grades 7-12 vote? Well, they can do it in their schools and local public libraries. Interested schools and libraries can find a basic sample ballot that can be adapted for use on the Rhode Island Teen Book Award website at http://riteenbookaward.org/.
Participating schools and libraries may accept teens' ballots. Remember, teens are only eligible to if they have read at least three titles from the nominee list. Voting results should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Results due by Monday, February 22nd at the latest.
