If you have any questions or comments about the Stellar Award, please direct them to email@example.com
What's happening in 2012/2013?
Thank you to those of you who have ben busy reading the nominees this year, and to teachers and librarians who have Stellar reading groups running at your school or library this year. As you can see, the website hasn't been updated with the current content. We were hoping to go to a blog format this year, but due to several unforseen circumstances, that hasn't happened.
Never fear, though - we still want to make sure your students have a chance to vote for their favourite book from the nominees (listed below).
Please email votes to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday May 17, 2013.
Thank you again for your continued support.
