Voting

ONLINE VOTING FOR 2020-2021 HAS NOW CLOSED.

THE 2021 RED DOT WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON MONDAY, 17 MAY 2021.


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.


Vote collection

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.

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.
