Georgia Book Awards

Hi Members of the Georgia Library Media Association,

I am a retired middle school media specialist, and I am researching children’s choice award programs all across the country, including both the winners and the nominees. Information on the Georgia Children’s Book Awards web site includes all the winners and the nominees from 1999 to 2010. I have been in contact with a person from the College of Education at the University of Georgia and have been sent many more of the nominee lists, but I am still missing lists for fifteen years. My interest is limited to the Middle Grade Novels section of the award. Would any of you happen to know the nominees for the Grades 4-8 Award for the following years and be willing to send them to me? The following are the years I am still missing: 1970-71, 1972-73, 1974-75, 1976-77, 1978-79, 1980-81, 1981-82, 1982-83, 1987-88, 1989-90, 1990-91, 1992-93, 1993-94, 1994-95, and 1996-97. If anyone could help me with this information, I would certainly appreciate it.

Thank you in advance,

Christine Blair Media Specialist (Retired from Nuttall Middle School) Robinson, Illinois
