2021 RITBA Voting

Mon, 01/11/2021 - 2:45pm -- RCOtt

It’s that time of the year again – voting for the 2021 Rhode Island Teen Book Award winner! Teens of Rhode Island get a chance to vote for the book they think is the best book they have read from a list selected by teachers, public librarians, and school library media specialists.


Where can our teens vote? Well, they can do it in schools and local public libraries. Interested schools and libraries can find an official ballot and a QR code to our digital voting form under Official Election Ballot, to download and print for use at your library.  Due to this year's pandemic situation, we are also accepting digital ballots (from individual students and physical voting sites) at www.tinyurl.com/RITBAvote.  Ballots can be accepted at the participating schools, libraries, and online from January 25, 2021 through February 28, 2021. Voting results from physical voting sites should be submitted through the digital ballot form by the end of day Monday, March 1, 2021.


We are once again offering free books as prizes and incentives for both teen voters and voting stations in public and school libraries across Rhode Island. For more information and to get your voting station involved, click here for 2021 Voting Incentives.
