Perma-Bound has partnered with the Buckeye Children’s and Teen Book Awards to offer an exciting new grant opportunity, designed to give more children access to great books and provide them opportunities to be actively engaged in reading and the democratic process, as they use their votes to determine the next Buckeye Book Award winners.

The winner of this grant will win three copies each of the top five nominees in their grade-level, for a total of 15 books, from Perma-Bound. There will be 4 grant winners named, one in each grade-level category.

Educators or librarians who work with children in the grade ranges of K-12 in Ohio may apply by completing the application by March 15, 2017 and must detail how they will use the awarded books in activities or programs that promote literacy and get children and teens involved in the Buckeye Book Award voting process.
