What is the ORA Patricia Gallagher Book Award? The award is a children’s choice award founded in 1997. It is named for Patricia Gallagher, a retired Western Oregon professor of children’s literature who is a former president of ORA.
How are the books chosen? A committee that may consist of ORA leaders, school librarians, public librarians, teachers, and school administrators review and select the books. The books must be readily available in paperback, be no more than eight years old from the original copyright date (usually hardback), hold an innate appeal to children, and have quality text and illustrations. They should also qualify as good read-alouds.
Who may vote? Oregon school children of all ages.
When to vote? Voting will occur between September 1st and May 1st. Votes must be reported by May 1st.
Where to vote? Voting may take place in any participating classroom, school library, or public library in the state of Oregon. Votes should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Where to get books? Capital Reading Council sponsors five sets of books for our members to use in their classroom.
