Selection committees meet from January - November and are comprised of school media specialists and public librarians.  Selection committee members must be members of CLA or CASL.  Student representatives are also present on each selection committee.  Two 6/7th graders are on the Intermediate committee, two 8/9th graders are on the Teen committee, and two 10/11th graders are on the High School committee.  They are selected via an application process.  The 2016 Nutmeg Selection Committee members have all been chosen. If you missed the application window, we encourage you to check our website mid-October to apply for a spot on a 2017 committee
