misc_none 2018 Cartwheel Book Awards Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Mr. Steve   508-966-1660

Are you between the ages of 9-12? Do you love to read books? Do you want your voice heard? Then we are looking for you for to be a committee member for our very own Cartwheel Book Awards! This is the 5th year of the Cartwheel Book Awards, which is the Bellingham Library's version of the Kids' Choice Awards for Middle Grade Fiction. 

During the course of this calendar year, committee members will read the same ten books, which are selected by Mr. Steve and are published between May 2016 and April 2017. The books are selected for written quality, kid appeal, and genre diversity. After the committee member has read each of the ten books, s/he can vote for his/her choices in six categories: Best Written, Favorite Book Cover, Favorite Male Character, Favorite Female Character, Best Ending, and Favorite Book.

At the end of 2017, we will tally up the votes and contact the authors who won to ask them to send in acceptance speeches (many authors send in thank you videos). In late January or February 2018, all the committee members and their families will attend the awards ceremony where the kids will reveal the winners in each category and get to see the authors' responses! A local producer videotapes the awards night and edits it into a tv show to preserve the memories of the evening.

Please register for more information and the list of book titles.

        There are many spaces available.
