All students are eligible to vote for their favorite books in these four contests.  Be sure to note when voting closes! You must vote on or before the Submit by date.  Those dates are subject to change and may be extended.  That said, don’t vote too early; read as many of the books as you can before you vote. But, how can you get the books with the schools and public libraries closed? Epic has Refugee as an audio book. You can borrow most of the titles in ebook or audiobook format for free from the public library on Libby. Place your holds now! Some might be free on Kindle right now.

Click on the name of the contest below and complete the form.  You must log in to Office365 with your school account to access the forms and participate in the contest for all awards EXCEPT the Washington Children’s Choice Award. No log in is necessary there.

Questions about the form and voting should be directed to Julie Hunter, Librarian at Wade King Elementary, Email  julie.hunter@bellinghamschools.org
