Voting is open!

Voting is now open! 

If you are a student still wanting to vote for your favorite, go see your teacher or librarian to cast your vote!

During the month of March, teachers and librarians should gather their students' votes for their favorite picture book and junior book from the list of 2016-17 North Carolina Children's Book Award nominees.  Only teachers and librarians should complete the vote tally survey (link is below) when they have gathered all of the votes for their school or library and found a total number of votes for each title. Please submit the totals for your school or library only once.

If you have questions or are unable to submit your votes through the Google survey, please email your totals for each title to Lisa England at 

We can't wait to see what the children of North Carolina have to say about their favorite books for 2017!

Record your school's total votes  

Nominations are open for 2017-18!

It's time to start nominating your favorite picture books and junior books for the 2017-2018 North Carolina Children's Book Awards.  Nominations are generated by the children of North Carolina.  Teachers and librarians may help children enter their nominations or do it for them, 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 then voted on by kids to get to the two top books of the year!  Click on the following link or go to the "Nominate" page on the bar above or in the panel to the left.
