Important Dates for Red Cedar Readers

It’s almost time to vote for your winner.  Children can cast their vote for the Red Cedar Book Award winner from April 19-30.

We’re very excited that the Red Cedar Awards Gala for 2018 will be Sunday, June 3 in Vancouver.  Come meet other young readers, present short skits on your favorite book, listen to readings from nominated authors, show off your book trailer, and enjoy some snacks with us! We will be announcing the winners of the 2017/18 Red Cedar Awards live at the Gala, and releasing the lists of 2018/19 nominees! The Gala will take place June 3 from 2-4pm (book signing after) in the Alice MacKay Room of the Vancouver Public Library (350 West Georgia Street).

Please RSVP to attend the Gala! Just email redcedaraward@gmail.com with the number in your group. You can see the winners announced in person!

Students attending the event are asked to bring a completed Photo Release Form with them.  Please print out this form and hand it out to your students for their parent / guardian to sign.

2016-2017 Gala

We had a wonderful afternoon at our Gala on May 6, and were so grateful to share the day with so many wonderful students, teachers and writers.  In the end, the winners were Kevin Sands for The Blackthorn Key and Julia Coey for Animal Hospital!

We are especially grateful to our generous sponsors for the support they give us — we couldn’t do Red Cedar without you! HUGE thanks to:
