AWARD and AWARD CRITERIA
Thanks to the generous support of Marshall Cavendish, NMRT is able to offer three tickets to the Newbery/Caldecott/Wilder Banquet at the ALA 2008 Annual Conference in Anaheim, CA. Tickets are $89 each, which would be out of the financial reach of most NMRT members if it weren't for the generosity of Marshall Cavendish.
Any NMRT member who is not currently serving on the Marshall Cavendish Award Committee may enter. Just write a short essay (around 250 words) telling us why you want to attend the Newbery/Caldecott/Wilder Banquet and how you feel you would benefit.
