It's time to start nominating books for the 2022-2023 North Carolina Children's Book Awards!
Nominations are submitted by the children of North Carolina in grades K-6th. Teachers
and librarians may help children enter their nominations, but no teacher or librarian should enter their own favorites.
That's what makes this award so special - the books are nominated by
kids and voted on by kids to determine the top two books of the year! Click on "nominate a book" to get started.
Kids may nominate more than one favorite.
