During Term 1 each year children across Victoria are asked to recommend their favourite Australian books to other children by nominating their four favourite Australian titles.
All nominations are collated and the 10 books with the most nominations in each of the award categories are the shortlisted books for that year. Students are then encouraged to read as many of these books across Term 2 and Term 3 that they can.
All this reading is leading to each student rewarding their very favourite book during the voting process in early Term 4.
