Design the Birbery Award Medal!

Surely you've seen a book with that fancy gold medal pressed onto its cover before. If you look closely, you'll notice that the medal shows that this book is a Newbery Award winning book (or a Coretta Scott King Award winner, or a Caldecott Award winner, etc). We want to create a label for the Birbery award winners, too -- and we want your help!!


All students are invited to design the Birbery medal. All entries must be <2" circle>. Please submit your entries to your Media Specialist via school email [or some other way to submit?] by February 10, 2011.

One medal from each school will be chosen to compete in the final round. The medals that make it to the final round will be posted below and students may vote for the winning design. The winning medal design will be announced the same day we announce the award winning book -- March 31, 2011. Stay tuned!
