Voting for the 2018 GCBA Winners

Online voting for the Georgia Children’s Picturebook (Gr. K-4) and Book (Gr. 4-8) Award will begin Friday, January 20, 2018, at 12:01 a.m. and will conclude at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, March 2, 2018.  Winners will be announced at the 2018 Georgia Conference on Children’s Literature to be held at the UGA Hotel and Conference Center March 23-24, 2018.

Voting Process

Schools and public libraries are invited to submit votes. Each organization should designate one person to complete the ballot on behalf of their students or youth patrons. The representative will need to enter the school/library name, the school district/library region, and their name and position (i.e. Media Specialist, 3rd Grade Teacher, Literacy Coach, Children’s Service’s Librarian, etc…).

The representative will input all of the votes for their school/public library in a single ballot.  Organizations that submit multiple ballots will not have their votes counted.

A back button has been added to the survey so that any mistakes made during the voting process can be corrected before completing the ballot.

Upon completion of the voting process, you will receive a “Thank You” notification indicating your votes have been successfully recorded. If you don’t receive this notification, please contact us via email:
