Mock the Youth Media Awards

The Newbery and Caldecott Awards are a week away! The excitement surrounding these awards is exciting and now you can bring that home to your library by hosting a mock Newbery or Caldecott election! ALSC offers a revised, digital version of the Newbery & Caldecott Mock Elections Tool Kit is available at the online ALA Store. The digital format allows for many extra materials that the previous print versions couldn’t offer. The 2011 revisions were the work of ALSC member Steven Engelfried, incoming chair of the 2013 Newbery Committee. You can also purchase ALSC’s archived version of the Newbery and Caldecott Mock Election Toolkit webinar for only $25! This webinar presents public librarians and school librarians with ideas on how to host the perfect Newbery/Caldecott mock election. Bring the excitement home with these great resources!
