Newbery 100th Anniversary Mini-Poll on SLJ.com
Last week we asked Heavy Medal readers to weigh in on some poll questions inspired by the 100th Anniversary of the Newbery Medal. We’ve decided to go a little further and just put some more questions up on School Library Journal’s website. Starting today you can hop over to SLJ.com and respond to any or all of the 11 Newbery-related questions on the Newbery 100th Anniversary Mini-Poll.
Emily and I will be watching the results with interest, because we’re co-writing a Newbery article for a future issue of SLJ and we’ll integrate those reader responses into that writing. So start thinking about Newbery Shockers, Criteria Changes, Movie Projects and other fun and thought-provoking Newbery-related topics. The poll closes on Tuesday, November 9th at 8:00 pm EST / 5:00 pm PST.
