The Chickadee Award
The Chickadee Award is a picture book award program for children in kindergarten through fourth grade. This award is given annually to one of ten picture books nominated by a committee of teachers, librarians, and early literacy professionals. Each year the books are chosen from those published in the previous year and are selected because they present a solid original story and artwork that supports and extends the text.
Using the Chickadee Award Booklet as a guide for classroom enrichment, teachers can provide children with a variety of opportunities to become involved with each story, to explore its meaning and share ideas with others. All children who participate in the program may vote for their favorite book by April 1, 2013. All voting will be done online and will be available on this website a month before the deadline.
Each year, the winning title will be announced in early April, within a week after voting concludes, on http://www.chickadeeaward.org. The results will also be posted on the Maine Library Association's listserv ME-LIBS and announced at Reading Roundup.
