SCBWI Crystal Kite Awards Voting is Underway! Vote on Today!

The most recent addition to the many awards and grants given by SCBWI is the Crystal Kite Member Choice Awards. These annual awards will be given to the best book as chosen by the members of each SCBWI Regional Division (see for division breakdowns) for first-run books published during the previous calendar year. (The 2011 awards go to books published in 2010.) 


It's time to vote!

Simply  log in to with your email address and password, then click through to your regional home page to cast your vote.

Round 1 voting ends March 15th!

SCBWI members can vote once per round for books nominated in their regional division. The top five vote-getting books in each region will become finalists and then there will be a second round of voting beginning on March 17th. (I'll remind you here, and you'll get email reminders from the SCBWI HQ).

The second-round winners in each division receive a 2011 Crystal Kite Award!

Winners will be announced on April 30th in an SCBWI press release with awards formally handed out at regional conferences.  Winners receive a personally engraved crystal kite, a specially designed Crystal Kite sticker for their books, and a chance to present at regional conferences. Plus one Crystal Kite winner will be chosen by SCBWI HQ to deliver a speech at the Annual Summer Conference in Los Angeles.

What are you wating for? Vote!
