Final Call for Mock Newbery Nominations: Select two final books for December
With December just a few days away, it’s time to submit the final two nominations for the Heavy Medal Mock Newbery Award. This is the last of three rounds for nominations. Like the real Committee, Heavy Medal readers were asked to select three titles in October and two in November. The 58 titles already nominated are listed here. Now it’s time to choose your final picks.
Making these final decision requires thought and strategy, which Steven outlined last week.
On Heavy Medal, we’ll consider the nominations totals as we select the titles for the Heavy Medal Book List, which will be announced soon. We already know six books that will be on that list, but it’s fine to use your last nominations for any of those six as well.
Please comment your nominations below: you can just name the titles, but you’re also welcome to include a bit about why you chose them.
If you missed either of the previous nomination periods you can catch up now, as long as you don’t exceed seven total. December Nominations will close on the end of the day Saturday, December 3rd and we’ll post totals on the 5th.
Now own Monday, own your last nominations!
