Read a winner....read a Black-Eyed Susan Award nominee!
What is the Black-Eyed Susan Award? It is a kid's choice award in which students read nominated books and vote for their favorites. After tallying the votes from students throughout the state of Maryland, one is declared a winner! Visit the Maryland Association of School Librarians website to learn more about the award and view past winners. Or, visit http://www.mackinbooktalk.com/viewbook.aspx?BookId=2727 to read more about each nominated book and reviews by other students! Be sure to choose the correct age level from the drop-down menu in the upper righthand side of the website.
At the elementary school level, we can participate in 3 categories, the picture book award, the chapter book award for grades 4-6 and the graphic novel category for grades 4-6. Want to participate and help choose the winner? Ask Mrs. Siderius for more info or check out our Black-Eyed Susan video to see last year's winners and a sneak peek at the nominees for 2016-2017!
