2011 Teen Buckeye Book Award nominees announced

The Buckeye Children’s Book Award Council announces the nominees for the 2011 Teen Buckeye Book Award.  The following titles were chosen in an online nomination process by young readers all across the state of Ohio.

Ohio’s reader’s choice book award is unique among other state book award programs in that the nominated and winning titles are entirely selected by children.  Teachers and librarians who encourage their students to participate in the Buckeye Children’s Book Award reading/nominating/reading/voting process report an enthusiastic response.

Have your child, students or young library patrons participate and vote for their favorite on the TBBA website: www.bcbookaward.info/teens.

  • Things A Brother Knows by Dana Reinhardt (Wendy Lamb Books, 2010)
  • Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy, Book 6) by Richelle Mead (Razorbill, 2010)

To be eligible for nomination, a book must have been written by an American author and published in either 2009 or 2010.  Voting is open to any student in Ohio, and will begin on September 1, 2011 on the TBBA website: www.bcbookaward.info/teens .  Voting ends on November 10, 2011, and the winners will be announced on December 1, 2011.
