Know of any great grades 4-8 teachers or literacy specialists? Send them
our way!

The Maine Student Book Award Committee is currently accepting applications
for one new committee member to represent classroom teachers and literacy
specialists. Applicants should be avid readers of children's literature who
are currently working with kids in our targeted age range (grades 4-8).
Until the MLC is reactivated or a similar group is formed, members
representing classroom teachers/literacy specialists will pay their $25 in
dues directly to the Maine Student Book Award Committee.

The committee meets four times a year (January, March, May and September).
Meeting locations vary throughout the state.

Committee Member Requirements:
*Has a passion for and knowledge of children's literature.
*Is currently working with children in grades 4-8.
*Is willing to travel to meetings in different parts of the state.
*Is prepared to read and review over 100 middle grade fiction and
nonfiction books per year.
*Is comfortable with technology and a proficient user of the Google Suite
apps: Sheets, Forms, Sites and Slides.
*Responds to email and other forms of correspondence in a timely manner.

No published children's book author, editor, publisher, or publicist may be
a member of the committee.

Applications are due by September 30. You can apply here.

I'm happy to answer any questions off-list. Thanks!
