The winners of the 2010 Oregon Summer Reading Certificate contest are...

Children's: Moose (http://www.oregon.gov/OSL/LD/youthsvcs/srp.certificates/2.kids.moose.pdf)
Teen: Surfboard (http://www.oregon.gov/OSL/LD/youthsvcs/srp.certificates/1.ya.surfboard.pdf)

I will take these mock-ups to the State printing office next week where a graphic designer will polish them up for us, add the official State of Oregon logo and the signatures of the State Librarian and State Superintendent of Schools, and print hardcopies that will be distributed to schools and libraries statewide for FREE!  
We are now taking pre-orders to better estimate how many hardcopies to print.  As in the past, digital copies will also be available to download and print on demand.  

Place your order for FREE hardcopies online at: http://library.state.or.us/services/surveys/survey.php?sid=475 .  

Teachers, reading specialists, and school librarians may present Oregon Summer Reading certificates to students who read or listen to 10 books over the summer.  Children and teens may also get certificates at their public library by completing the library's summer reading program or providing the library with a list of the 10 books they read.  

The 2010 Summer Reading Program theme is water, the children's slogan is " Make a Splash--READ!", and the teen slogan is "Make Waves @ your library".  The children's summer reading art designed by Henry Cole and teen art by Ursula Vernon is used on thess certificate with permission through Oregon public libraries' memberships to the Collaborative Summer Library Program.  The Oregon Summer Reading Certificates are made available to libraries, schools, and teachers at no cost thanks to a collaboration between the Oregon State Library, Oregon Department of Education, and Oregon Library Association and is funded by a generous donation from the Oregon Education Association.

Subject: 2010 Oregon Summer Reading Certificates--VOTE by April 18th

Attention Oregon school and public librarians!

For the past 3 years the State Library and Department of Education have provided Oregon Summer Reading Certificates to libraries in Oregon. In the past, I took three or four mock-up certificates to the Spring OLA Children Services Division meeting at which librarians voted to select the one mock-up certificate they wanted to be printed and made available to download.  Two things have changed this year:  1) voting will take place via email, allowing both public and school librarians to vote, and 2) this year the State will provide both a children's Make a Splash and a teen Make Waves certificate!

To view the 2010 mock-ups online:  http://www.oregon.gov/OSL/LD/youthsvcs/oregon.srp.certificate.shtml#VOTE_for_the_2010_Certificates If this link does not work, try to cut and paste it in your browser. 

To vote: Please send an email with the subject heading "Oregon Summer Reading Certificate" to Katie Anderson (katie.anderson at state.or.us) by the end of the day April 18, 2010. The body of your email should include the title of one children's mock-up and one teen mock-up you would like printed and made available this summer.  

The winning certificates will be announced the week of April 19- 23, 2010 via an email sent out on the kids-lib, OYAN, and OASL listservs.  The announcement email will also include link and URL for online ordering of hard copies of the the certificates.  Please start thinking now about how many children's certificates in English and Spanish, and how many teen certificates in English and Spanish you will need so you are prepared when online ordering is available later this month.  Remember, these certificates are FREE! 

In 2007 the Oregon Department of Education, Oregon State Library, and Oregon Library Association coordinated their efforts to create a joint Oregon Summer Reading Certificate with funding from the Oregon Education Association. The joint certificate has the national Collaborative Summer Library Program artwork on it and is signed by the State Librarian and the State Superintendent of Public Instruction. This effort signifies the commitment of schools and libraries to the education of Oregon's youth.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,
