WNDB Bookseller of the Year Nomination Form
Nominate your local independent bookseller/store for the WNDB Bookseller of the Year Award, honoring an individual bookseller (or a group of booksellers at a given store) best exemplifying WNDB’s mission to promote literature that reflects and honors the lives of all young people.

The winner will be chosen based on the following criteria:

a) strength of nomination letter
b) supporting materials including pictures of shelftalkers that promote diverse books, and images of displays that either focus on diverse books, or that actively include diverse books in an overall theme. It’s safe to say that the more displays that are submitted, the better! Pictures can be e-mailed to WNDB.Booksellers.Award@diversebooks.org.
c) social media involvement. Tag the store and @diversebooks with the hashtag #WNDBooksellers on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr. When possible, take pictures of the WNDB anthology, Flying Lessons, and WNDB Walter Award Winners (All American Boys/X/Enchanted Air) on their shelves.
d) once nominated, bookstores can continue using the hashtag #WNDBooksellers to strengthen their application

The winner will receive:

1) One year's custody of the WNDB Bookseller of the Year perpetual trophy (picture below), to be presented at the Walter Awards Ceremony at the Library of Congress. Travel and lodging stipend to the award ceremony is included. *note that the trophy will be passed on to the next winner each year*
