The North Carolina Children's Book Award (NCCBA) is awarded annually to the book that receives the most votes from elementary school children across North Carolina from the list of nominations. There is an award for the favorite picture book and the favorite junior book. To see previous winners and current nominees, visit http://www.plcmc.org/bookhive/books/category.asp?category=nccba or see the NCCBA link on the Caleb's Creek media center website.
Caleb's Creek K-2 students are reading the picture book nominees in the media center with Mrs. DuBois and voting for their favorites.
3-6 students may read the junior book nominees on their own and vote for their favorite as long as they have read at least 5 nominees. Just let Mrs. DuBois know if which books you read and which you would like to vote for!
All votes will be submitted to the state in mid-March and the winner will be announced near the end of the school year.
