>Get the Vote Out!


Help make voting happen for the 2008 New York’s Children’s Choice and Teen Choice Awards in libraries all over New York State. Children and teens have been reading all year to select New York’s 3 Apples Book Award, and it’s time to vote!

Voting has begun for both awards! Library staff collects the votes from both children in grades 3-6 or ages 8-12 for the Children’s Choice Award and teens in grades 7-12 or ages 13+ for the Teen Choice Award.

All eligible participants must have read or listened to three titles on either list to vote. Note that children and teens can still vote in the final ballot even if they did not participate in the nomination process. Voting can takes place at either their school or public library.

Each member library and branch will receive in the delivery:
Get the Vote Out Instruction Sheet, with website for vote submission;
A new poster listing the Finalists for both Children’s and Teen Awards
26 half sheet ballots for the Children’s Choice vote, and 26 for the Teen Choice vote.

To get started, create a polling station at your library, put the official list of finalists in a mylar frame, and a box to collect ballots.

The public voting period ENDS on January 20th, 2008.Librarians then tally the votes & submit them online (, via the “VOTE” section of the 3 Apples Book Award website, by January 31, 2008.

Use the vote as an opportunity to work with your local schools to give children and teens voting rights!

The 3 Apples Book Award is a joint program of the Youth Services (YSS) and School Library Media (SLMS) Sections of the New York Library Association (NYLA).Call or email Sue with any questions!
