Some library media specialists include titles from more than one level (primary, intermediate, middle/junior high) in their school's voting, but each student is allowed only one vote.
Votes at the various levels (primary, intermediate, middle/junior high) should be collected by the participating library media specialist or teacher and sent to the Golden Archer Committee via the online Voting Ballot. Any actual paper ballots you used or collected are not turned in to WEMTA. You may create and use any sort of ballot you would like.
Voting for the 2017 Golden Archer Award is now closed. Thank you for giving your students the opportunity to have their voice heard in selecting the next winners of the Golden Archer Awards.
The library media specialist and/or classroom teacher solicit nominations from their students. Nominated titles are sent to the Golden Archer Committee via the online Nomination Ballot.
Each participating school may nominate a maximum of five (5) books for each category (primary, intermediate, middle/junior high) that is represented in that school. All nominated titles should have a copyright year within the last five (5) years.
All nominations should include the number of students nominating each title.
Book nominations for 2018 are due by May 1st.
Nominating for 2018 will be opening in April. Thank you for your participation!
The winners will be announced at the annual WEMTA Conference. Golden Archer Medal stickers are available for purchase at the WEMTA Conference and on the WEMTA website.
