Nominate titles for the 2019 ORCA

Nominations for the 2019 Oregon Readers Choice Award titles open on January 2, 2018.

Which titles can be nominated? Titles for the 2019 ORCA need a 2016 copyright date.  This delay ensures that the title will be readily available in paperback during the voting year.

Who can nominate titles?  Oregon students, this is your chance to nominate your favorites.  Oregon teachers and librarians are also eligible to nominate titles.

How long is the nomination link open?  The link will be open from January 1 until February 28, 2018.

Then what happens?  The nominations are reviewed by a committee of librarians and educators.  The committee selects the final titles based upon a number of criteria, including literary quality, creativity, reading enjoyment, reading level, and regional interest.

Oregon students in grades 3-12 can vote if they have read or listened to at least 2 books in one of the divisions.

2019 titles will be announced at the Oregon Library Association Convention in April and posted on the ORCA website.
