Still time for the Trailees!

Good news!  The deadline is extended for SLJ’s Trailee Awards!

If you missed the August 31 deadline to nominate your favorite book trailer–perhaps because of that little thing called summer–you still have time to gather those little video gems. The deadline is extended till September 15.

Submit your favorite book trailer in any of these categories:

  • Publisher/Author for elementary readers (PreK-6)
  • Publisher/Author for secondary readers (7-12 grade)
  • Student created for elementary readers (PreK-6 grade)
  • Student created for secondary readers (7-12 grade)
  • Adult (anyone over 18) created for PreK-12 grade
  • Educator/Librarian created for PreK-12 grade

Anyone is eligible to suggest a video for consideration that was originally posted between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011.

Send an email to including the name of the video, the URL where it lives online, the creator of the video, the book’s author and the title of the book featured in the video, along with publisher and copyright date. Describe in no more than 150 words how the trailer draws in potential readers. A committee of six librarians will judge the competition and ensure that the entries meet the necessary criteria.
