Posted on behalf of the Oregon Reader's Choice Award Committee.

Hello everyone,

I wanted to let you know that the link for nominations for the 2018 Oregon Reader's Choice Award is up and live on the ORCA web site! Woot! Please let your students know that we'd love to hear from them!

There's a tab on the top which says "Nominate 2018 Titles".  You'll find the web site here:https://oregonreaderschoiceaward.wordpress.com<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__oregonreaderschoiceaward.wordpress.com_&d=DwMFaQ&c=pslXprxdtWHFBuj41-AaSLF1gHAT1_cek1PvLND777Q&r=63q7r7MctwqqC5dLowC20FFtAr28GpbqYY7Tr01Aj6Y&m=ZlmO-FSxieQXYK6IPwAtyzT7ARo5dUR-fNrlV23Eyoc&s=RAX9NzR1TJC6wqe7vSKyLgVQVODCw32_ZlR81lLMNVM&e=>

Here are some FAQ:

Which titles can be nominated? Titles for the 2018 ORCA need a 2015 copyright date.  This delay ensures that the title will be readily available in paperback during the voting year.

Who can nominate titles?  Oregon students, this is your chance to nominate your favorites.  Oregon teachers and librarians are also eligible to nominate titles. You can even see what titles have been nominated so far!

How long is the nomination link open?  The link will be open from January 1 until February 28, 2017.

Then what happens?  The nominations are reviewed by a committee of librarians and educators.  The committee selects the final titles based upon a number of criteria, including literary quality, creativity, reading enjoyment, reading level, and regional interest.

2018 titles will be announced at the Oregon Library Association Convention in April and posted on the ORCA website.

And don't forget: Voting for the 2017 Oregon Readers Choice Award runs March 1-31, 2017. Oregon students in grades 3-12 can vote if they have read or listened to at least 2 books in one of the divisions.
