2018 Troybery finalists
After 3 rounds of voting and a total of 1,769 votes...Troy middle school students have chosen the titles for our official 2018 Troybery top ten list!
Voting for the Troybery Award winner will take place on April 11 and 12 in the Troy middle school media centers. Students must have read at least 3 of the 30 books on the 2018 potential Troybery list to be able to vote. The media specialists will have some great prizes for those who participate.
18th annual Troybery ceremony
Students who go to the Troybery ceremony on April 27 will get to Skype with two Troybery authors, Dusti Bowling and Lisa Thompson, AND get to have lunch with author Supriya Kelkar, who wrote Ahimsa!
NEW THIS YEAR: We will be live-streaming the Troybery Ceremony on YouTube so that all middle school students can watch the ceremony in their classrooms.
How do students get chosen to go to the ceremony? ELA teachers will be nominating their best readers from each class, and the media specialist will draw 30 names from that list. Or, students can create a Troybery project--if the project is chosen to be featured at the ceremony, then the student will be asked to attend.
Students who attend the ceremony should wear their school colors and bring a bag lunch. Punch and cookies will be provided. They should also bring questions to ask the authors. It will be an incredibly fun event for all in attendance!
