Oregon Reader's Choice Award (ORCA) It’s time to nominate titles for the 2017 Oregon Readers Choice Award titles at the ORCA blog<http://oregonreaderschoiceaward.wordpress.com/>. Here is a general timeline of how the process works and what you can do to help get the word out.
Which titles can be nominated? Titles for the 2017 ORCA need a 2014 copyright date.  This delay ensures that the title will be readily available in paperback during the voting year.  Categories are Upper Elementary (grades 4-5), Middle School (grades 6-8), and High School (grades 9-12).
Who can nominate titles?  Oregon students, this is your chance to nominate your favorites.  Oregon teachers and librarians are also eligible to nominate titles.
How long is the nomination link open?  The link <http://goo.gl/forms/ujUYDarifj> is open from January 1 until February 29, 2016.
What happens next?  The nominations are reviewed by a committee of librarians and educators.  The committee selects the final titles based upon a number of criteria, including literary quality, creativity, reading enjoyment, reading level, and regional interest.
Voting for the 2016 Oregon Readers Choice Award runs March 1-31, 2016.  Ballots are available on the website<http://www.olaweb.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=208> or the blog<http://oregonreaderschoiceaward.wordpress.com/resources/>. There will be links on both sites to submit your votes starting March 1.
Who can vote?  Oregon students in grades 4-12 can vote if they have read or listened to at least two books in one of the divisions.
When are the winners announced?  2016 winners and the 2017 nominees will be announced at the Oregon Library Association Convention in April and then posted on the ORCA website and blog.
What else can you do?  Let us know what kinds of fun things you did with your students and ORCA so we can share it with others.  Let your colleagues know about ORCA if they don't already.  There's no formal sign up process and participation is free!
