Note: 2012 was a preliminary year for the award, and the process for determining the winners will be modified in 2013 and subsequent years. In 2012 nominations were accepted from all students and staff for a portion of the calendar year, with books published in either 2011 or 2012 being eligible. Then committees of library staff and teachers discussed and narrowed the nominations down to the final winner lists. In future years the winning lists will be generated entirely from the open nominations received from students and staff throughout the calendar year, with no mediating committees. The final end-of-year tally of the student and staff votes will determine the winners.
