Participation in the Nutmeg Book Award voting is free, and there is no need to pre-register.
Students in grades 2-12 vote by official Nutmeg Book Award ballot in April for their favorite title at either their school or public library. These ballots will be posted on the Nutmeg website in March. Each institution may set up the voting as they see fit. Some schools vote at town hall, some libraries have a ballot box, and many places have parties, special events, or other Nutmeg celebrations during April. Each student may vote only once. Public and school librarians submit their institution's ballot tallies electronically on the Nutmeg website during the month of April.
Ballot forms are available for download as PDFs by clicking on the Participation Link during March and April.
Downloadable Forms for printing or photocopying (The ballots for 2015 voting are not yet available. They will be posted in March, 2015.)
