Australian student’s book trailer nomination

A post on OZTL_NET,  by teacher librarian Stacey Graham from Our Lady of Lourdes Primary School, Tarro, NSW,  alerted me to this. 

The School Library Journal has a competition for book trailers, the Trailee Award. The site is worth investigating and the final nominees are online  for our viewing (and voting) pleasure.

There are six categories, with each having four finalists. One of these is a 10-year-old Australian student (Marcus Graham) with the trailer he created is based on Bear and Chook by the Sea by Lisa Shanahan. This trailer was a recent CBCA Book Trailer competition winner.

The Trailee Categories are:

  • Publisher / author created for elementary readers (Pre-K – 6)
  • Publisher / author created for secondary readers (7-12)
  • Adult (18 +) created for elementary readers (Pre-K – 6)
  • Adult (18 +) created for secondary readers (7-12)
  • Student created for elementary readers (PreK-6)
  • Student created for secondary readers (7-12)

The winner is chosen by a vote and Australian can vote. Voting closes on 22nd October so have a look at the site and vote for the one you think is best!
