The Red Dot Awards
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 will be from March 7-14, 2012, and the winners will be announced on Saturday, March 17th. The results for individual schools are collected via an online survey form.
The Readers Cup event, based on a subset of the shortlists, will be held in May 2012.
See last year's winners on the 2010-2011 Red Dot Awards website.

Books can be sourced in a variety of ways. In Singapore there is Kinokuniya, Bookaburra, Littered with Books, Popular Books, etc. Online you can order books via Book Depository (UK) and Follett Titlewave (USA) -- which are more economical than Amazon (which charges shipping per book).

The Red Dot books are divided into four categories, roughly based on readers, rather than book formats or school divisions. (NB: It is up to every librarian to determine which books are right for which classes in your school.)
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.
A Readers Cup competition based on a subset of these shortlists is held in early May.
