The Red Dot children's choice book awards 
are an initiative of  the International School Libraries (ISLN) in Singapore.

All school libraries in Singapore  -- and the region --
are welcome to participate.  

Voting was held March 9th through 16th.
The results for individual schools collected via the online survey form
have been sent to the librarians of those schools, as school winners
may differ from the city-wide Singapore ones.

The Red Dot books are divided into four categories, roughly based on age and interest level:
  • Junior (where Captain Underpants and Geronimo Stilton are the assumed reading level)
  • Middle (where Inkheart and The Lightning Thief are the assumed reading level)
  • Senior (where Twilight and The Book Thief are the assumed reading level)
Shortlist titles are chosen by a committee of teacher-librarians from recent children's literature (first published in English within the past four years), with the goal of offering a range of books from around the world.  

Books are read from September through March.  Voting is held in March.

Readers Cup competition based on a subset of these shortlists is held in early May.
