Display the Winning Books from Your Class Book Awards Ceremony

By Beth Newingham on August 3, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

After our Class Book Awards ceremony, all winning book covers (color copies) are placed inside frames and added to our Class Book Award bulletin board display with a blue ribbon that indicates the category in which each book was nominated.

You may use this ribbon template, created in Print Shop, to make your own award ribbons. (If you don't have Print Shop, use the ribbon template PDF.)

Once a book has received an official Class Book Award, it is forever branded with a special seal to show current (and future) students that the book was selected by the students of Room 13 as a great read! Students often look for books with the award seal when choosing new books to put in their book box!

Download gold award seals for use with Microsoft Word. (Print on 2x4 labels.)

I've been looking for you website and I can't find it. I looked on the Hill Elementary Website but couldn't find a link for you. Please advise.

Hi there! When Scholastic revamped their website last year, many links were broken. They are aware of the problem andre currently working hard to restore broken links and videos. I am so sorry for this problem. Hopefully the links will be fixed soon!

I am having the same trouble. :(

Hi Beth -- Thanks for this, as well as all of your useful and thought-provoking posts. Quick question -- I have been perusing many of your posts on Scholastic, and when you click on the links to open a pdf, it goes back to the initial Scholastic homepage. I've tried many links on both my computer and my husband's, and it always has the same results. For instance, I tried to open the T-chart in the February top 10, and that's what happened. Any idea? Thanks again!
