Favorite Books: Time to vote for the Crystal Kite Award

Crystal KiteEvery year, members of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators get to vote on the Crystal Kite Award.

Voting for Round 1 on the award for books published in 2014 began on April 1st (no fooling!).  This round continues until April 14 at 5:00 pm Pacific Daylight Time. So if you are a member, get your vote in now.

To vote, go to the SCBWI web site, click here.

Once there, log in using your e-mail address and password.  If you have a problem logging in contact Josh Smith,

After you’ve logged in, click here or to go to

You will arrive at the page for your Crystal Kite division which is not the same as your region.  For example, my region is Missouri.  My Crystal Kite division is Mid-South.  Check out the list of books.  There are approximately 22 for Mid-South.  This part is going to be tough because you only get to vote for 1.  One!

Cast your vote and then hang on — Round 2 opens on April 18.  In Round 2 you will get to vote again on a short list composed of the top titles from Round One.

If you have a question about voting, contact Sara Rutenberg,

Let the voting begin!
