New Book Video Trailer Awards!

On September 27th School Library Journal will ask it's readers to vote for the best video trailers that promote books and encourage reading.

Voters will be asked to select the best video in six categories:

* Publisher/author created for Elementary readers (PreK-6)

* Student created for Elementary readers (PreK-6)
* Student created for Secondary readers (7-12)
* Adult (anyone over 18) created for Elementary readers (PreK-6)

There will be four nominations in each category, selected by a committee of librarians. Winners will be announced at the School Library Journal Leadership Summit on the Future of Reading on October 22, 2010 in Chicago.

The primary purpose of these awards is to recognize the important role that video plays in bringing readers to books as well as the wonderful creativity of the producers.

Only videos produced between January 1, 2006 to July 1, 2010 are eligible for consideration.

"Hello and sorry to bother but I discovered your site while looking for ways to integrate booktalks into my classroom and library experience. Would you be willing to tell me which program you use to create your animated booktalks? Thank you!"
