Vote for Star of the North Picture Book Award!

Thursday, March 1, 2018

The Star of the North Picture Book Award was established by the Minnesota Youth Reading Awards (MYRA). Its purpose is to promote quality, engaging picture books and reading for pleasure among school-aged children. Here is how the award works: • Each year ten picture book nominees will be announced. • Students or library participants who read or have read to them at least eight of the ten nominees will be eligible to vote. • Votes will be collected through MYRA members each March. [Psst! I am a MYRA member! Send me your votes! – Ms. Deni] • The award winner will be announced each year between April 18 and 25. New nominees will be announced at the same time. • This award is focused on picture books intended for a kindergarten through 2nd grade audience. However, pre-k and older children are also welcome to participate. For more information about this award, visit:
