Red Dot Book Awards - One Week to Vote!

Once a year for one week we vote for the best book in four categories:  Early Years, Younger Readers, Older Readers, and Mature Readers.  Any student is welcome to vote in any category - as long as they have read at least two of the books in that category (voting, after all, is about choosing).

In the Secondary School we mainly promote the Older Readers and Mature Readers books.  I'm sure you've noticed the big bookshelf devoted to them on the upper level.

Watch these 1-minute videos to remind yourself of the titles on offer this year.

Older Readers (aimed at grades 4 through 8):

Mature Readers (aimed at grades 8 through 12):

NB:  Our school voting code is UWCEAST.  The form will ask you for it.

Winners will be announced on Saturday, March 16th.

Afterwards, a subset of the Red Dot books will be selected as the quiz books for the Readers Cup, to be held in May.  Watch for details of how you can enter and compete.
