You voted and the results are in! 1388 votes were cast and counted, and the winner of the 2011-2012 Teen Reader’s Choice Award is The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins!
The first book in the wildly popular dystopian series took away the top honour with almost half (588) of the votes. To see how the rest of the Top 10 books ranked, check out the award blog.
I want to thank all the students who participated at SHS. An award ceremony was held in library for Jr. and Sr. Book Club members during lunch hour on Tuesday, May 29. It was a great way to end the first CCRSB Teen Reader’s Choice Award!
Voting for the first-annual CCRSB Teen Reader’s Choice Award is now open! If you’ve read at least one of the Top 10 books, you can vote online or fill out and submit a ballot in the library. You have only one vote, so make it count. Polls will close on Monday, May 14 and the winner will be announced at the end of the month!

Read at least one of the Top 10 books on the list between now and May 14. For every Top 10 book you check out, your name will be automatically added to a draw for a complete set of the Top 10 books. You can participate even if you didn’t nominate a book.
Discuss the books online with other CCRSB students on the Award website. Talk about whether you loved or hated a book, but remember to be respectful to other students and use school-appropriate language.
Vote between April 25 and May 14! You will be able to cast your vote with paper ballots in the library and online.
Let’s get reading!
