2019 Perma-Bound Buckeye Book Award Programming Grant
Perma-Bound is partnering with the Buckeye Children's and Teen Book Awards to offer an exciting grant opportunity. This book grant is designed to give more children access to great books, and provide them opportunities to be actively engaged in reading and the democratic process as they use their votes to determine the next Buckeye Book Award winners.

Children in the state of Ohio have been nominating their favorite books throughout the past year. This nomination period will close on March 10, 2019 and the nominations will be tallied. The top five nominees in each grade range category (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and Teen) will be announced on the Buckeye Children's and Teen Book Award website, www.bcbookaward.info, on April 1, 2019. The voting period will be open from September 1 - November 10, 2019.

Librarians and educators who work with children in the grade ranges of K-12 in Ohio may apply for a set of the nominated books in a grade category, for programming use. Applicants must describe specific ways they will use the awarded books in activities or programs that promote literacy and involve students in the Buckeye Book Award voting process.

The winners of this grant will receive three copies each of the top five nominees in their grade category, for a total of 15 books, from Perma-Bound.

There will be 4 grant winners named, one in each grade category.

Grant winners will be expected to provide evidence of programming to the Buckeye Children's and Teen Book Award Council by December 1, 2019. Evidence could include, but is not limited to: photographs, descriptions of events, and/or samples of student work.

Applications will be judged on criteria including the creativity of programming proposals, the number of children that will be engaged in the activities, and the emphasis placed on promoting literacy and on involvement in the Buckeye Book Award voting process. Special consideration will also be given to schools and organizations demonstrating financial need, or that serve economically distressed communities.

Applications must be completed by March 10, 2019.

Winners of the grant will be notified directly by April 1, 2019 and will be posted on the Buckeye Children's and Teen Book Award website.
