Kelly Herold, our tireless and esteemed Cybils Co-Founder and Director, has just posted a call for volunteers for 2007 Cybils panelists. In case you're missed it, the Cybils are the Children's and YA Bloggers Literacy Awards. They take into account both merit and popularity, because we, the Cybils team, believe that there are many books out there that are both well-written and well-loved.
Sound like something you might be interested in? Check out the call for volunteers, where Kelly says:
"Wanted: Nice bloggers who wish to give up any semblance of a personal life to help us select 2007 Cybils winners. We go through two rounds of judging, so we need lots of bodies.
Rules for volunteering are more persnickety than the rest of the contest, since there’s a mountain of books awaiting you and we need to know you're both willing and able.
Your reward -- some free books and global fame."
Click through to the full post for more details, including how to volunteer. I'll be coordinating the Middle Grade and Young Adult Non-Fiction category, and I really hope that some of you who have interest or expertise in non-fiction for kids will participate. Thanks!
P.S. The beautiful logo shown above, and in my right sidebar, was designed by Scott E. Franson. Thanks so much, Scott!
