The Golden Sower Award is the children's choice literary award for the state of Nebraska. The award's sponsors, the Nebraska Library Association, hope the program will sow seeds which stimulate children's thinking, introduce different types of literature, encourage independent reading, increase library skills, and foster an appreciation for excellence in writing and illustrating.
The full list of nominees can be found here. The Golden Sower Award website is undergoing an overhaul, but information about the award can be found here. I am just thrilled with this announcement and want to extend my congratulations to all my fellow nominees!
