Thank you to the many teachers, school librarians and staff, and librarians for providing an opportunity for students around the state to vote for their favorites. This year we had 2,454 students from about 70 schools and public libraries voting. If you have any photos or stories about your ORCA experience this year, please send them to me or comment on the blog. If you haven't held an ORCA vote at your location, the ORCA blog
( https://oregonreaderschoiceaward.wordpress.com/)  has booktalks, links to trailers, bookmarks and ballots. Thank you also to a great committee for making this all happen. If you have any questions, or comments, please feel free to email me.
