The Buckeye Children’s Book Award is now seeking nominations for 2011. Ohio is the only state to have a statewide book award program nominated and voted on exclusively by students. Students may nominate their favorite books until March 10. The top five nominations in each category are announced by the end of March, so teachers, librarians and students can become familiar with the nominated books and read them throughout the spring and summer. Voting will take place from September 1 – November 10, and the winners will be announced on December 1. Students may only nominate books by American authors, originally published in the previous 2 years.
