Guess the Judges! (And Win a Prize.)
We know that you have been wondering who the 2011 BoB Judges are.
We can tell you that, all fifteen of them have arrived at the judges booth! And some of them even have started reading the books!
There are nine women and six men.
Seven of them are Newbery winners or honor recipients in the last two decades.
We have a poet and several masters of historical fiction.
One judge writes monologues, while a few others create fantastic or futuristic worlds.
Several let us peek into different cultures.
Some make us ponder the real world of teens, and
one of them has been scaring young readers since 1992.
Now, let the guessing game begin!
Put together a panel of 15 judges from today’s working authors for children and teens in the comment below for a chance to win some prizes!
Let’s see which entries match most closely to the actual list of the 2011 BoB Judges!
Remember: the authors for this year’s contenders are not eligible and there is no overlapping from the past two years of judges.
