ONLINE VOTING FOR 2020-2021 IS NOW OPEN AND WILL CLOSE AT 5PM ON MONDAY, 10 MAY 2021.
The short URL for the individual voting form is: http://bit.ly/redvote2021
(See below for the block entry form for librarians.)
As the Red Dots are a “student choice” award, only students may vote.
Students may vote for ONE book in each category (Early Years, Younger Readers, Older Readers, and Mature Readers).
There is no minimum number of books that must be read (though we assume you have read at least two – as voting implies comparison between two or more things).
Simply one vote per student per category.
How schools collect votes internally is up to them.
Schools may choose to use more than one method of collecting votes to tailor the process to the age of their students and time constraints. The individual online voting form is perhaps preferable for older students.
Votes gathered within schools may also be submitted by librarians via a block voting entry form. The block entry form (for LIBRARIANS ONLY) is available here.
Each school announces their own winners in each category to their own schools. Those schools submitting their votes online are notified of their school totals by the committee.
