The Dorothy Canfield Fisher (DCF) Book Award, Vermont’s children’s choice award for grades 4-8, is a great way to get children reading and talking about excellent books. Founded in 1957, it is the country’s second oldest child-selected book award, and as such has a rich history and outstanding reputation nationally.
There will be two openings on the DCF committee for the upcoming year. This is a great opportunity for someone who loves to read children’s books to meet with others with the same passion for bringing books and children together. Anyone interested in applying should email a letter of interest, a resume and two reviews, one positive and one negative, of children’s books of their choice, to Grace Greene (firstname.lastname@example.org) by January 27, 2012. The new members will be selected in February, and will begin their duties in the summer. Terms are for three years, with a chance to renew for a second term.
