Hackmatack Children's Choice Book Award

Another Canadian young readers' book award?  You bet!
If you're a young reader, 9 to 12 years of age, living in Atlantic Canada, then you're fortunate to be able to share your favourite reading with others through the annual Hackmatack Children's Choice Book Award literary program.  This program, designed to promote literacy and Canadian books, provides four lists of ten nominated titles annually: English Fiction, English Non-Fiction, French Fiction and French Non-Fiction.  Nominations are announced in the spring with reading taking place from September to March, voting before April, and then announcement of the winning titles in April or May.

Young readers will soon be voting for their favourite reads from the 2011-2012 Hackmatack Children's Choice Book Award nominations (see lists below) with the winners announced at a ceremony on April 27, 2012 in Moncton, New Brunswick.
