Beverly Cleary Children's Choice Award

2012 Winner!   Brian Dennis,

Nubs: The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine, and a Miracle


The Beverly Cleary Children's Choice Award, sponsored by the Oregon Educational Media Association, (OEMA), was established in the spring of 2002.

The purpose of this award is to encourage reading by highlighting good quality literature (fiction and nonfiction) written on the second - third grade reading level, taking into account text, format and the illustrations of the books. This contest will encourage books that students may not otherwise find on their own and are not necessarily the popular best sellers.

All elementary school-age children in Oregon are invited to participate in this contest. Students must read (or listen to) at least two of the nominated books. Voting will take place between March 15 and April 1, 2007.
