Over 35 librarians and other kidlit fans read, discussed, and finally selected the 2010 OLA/WLA Mock Newbery Award winner (and two honor books) on Friday, December 10:

Mock Newbery Medal:   One Crazy Summer

Mock Newbery Honor Books:    Woods Runner  by Gary Paulsen   &   The Dreamer

The full-day Newbery program kicked off with Teacher Librarians Andrea Burke and Lisa Williams from the Beaverton School District (OR) talking about their experiences working with students in succesful Mock Newbery programs through their schools over many years.  Steven Engelfried then shared background on the Newbery process and criteria from his year on the 2010 Committee.  The afternon was all book discussion, followed by the final balloting.

This Mock Newbery workshop was sponsored by the Children's and Young Adult Services (CAYAS) group of the Washington Library Association and the Children's Division of the Oregon Library Association, and was held at the Cascade Park branch of the Fort Vancouver Regional Library.
