What is the Nebraska Golden Sower Award?
The Golden Sower Award is a children’s choice award given annually to authors and illustrators as determined by the votes of thousands of school-age readers from across Nebraska. Golden Sower Awards are given annually representing three categories: Primary, Intermediate, and Young Adult.
How does the Golden Sower Award program work?
Each year the program runs from summer to the following spring with local libraries and schools introducing the current nominated titles. Readers can enjoy reading or listening to the nominees throughout the year. Eligible voters must cast their ballots through a library or school before the April 15th deadline.
