R.E.A.D. for Nēnē
The selection committee puts together nominee booklist titles, selected from top votes and write-ins from the previous school year by the children of Hawai'i. Any favorite, well-written book following the below eligibility guidelines may be nominated. Email nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org
Official nominations for the Nene Award come from children, teachers, and librarians in the state of Hawaii. However, publishers or authors are welcome to send review copies to the Nene Title Recommendation Committee for consideration. We have a continuous review process. We consider any juvenile fiction for grades 4 through 6 published within the last six years - since 2009 - for the next list.
There are usually about five members of the committee. Review copies can be sent to:
