T/WEENS: Make your voice heard! VOTE NOW

T/weens, it is time to vote on which book earns The Flume Award and the Isinglass Award!  What are they, you ask? What is nominated?  How do I vote? Don’t you worry – we’re here to answer all of those questions!

What is the Flume Award?

According to its official website: “The Flume: NH Teen Reader’s Choice Award was created in 2005 in response to a New Hampshire teen’s request to have a book award geared towards high school students. This award is a state-wide venture led by a collaborative effort from school and public librarians. Each year teens nominate titles, published within the last two years, they think deserve to be recognized. Librarians narrow the group of titles to a shorter list. Teens then vote for the winning title from that list.”

What is nominated?

How do I vote?

What about the Isinglass Award? What is that?

“The Isinglass Teen Read Award was begun in 2001 by the Barrington Public Library and the Barrington Middle School in order to promote teen reading, the participation of teens in the creation of their own reading list, and to honor those authors whose works speak to youth. The award is now open to all New Hampshire students in grades 7-8.”
