MFA student Joe Kulka's (Class of 2015) book My Crocodile Does Not Bite has been nominated for the 2015-2016 Nebraska Golden Sower Primary Award. The Golden Sower Award is Nebraska’s Children’s Choice Literary Award. The award is given yearly, with recipients of the award selected by Nebraska school children.
The Golden Sower Award consists of three levels: Primary, Intermediate and Young Adult. Each level consists of a list of ten nominated titles. To be eligible to vote, the child must read or listen to a minimum of four current nominees between June 2015 and April 2016. The winning book in each level will be honored at the Nebraska Library Association annual conference in the fall of 2016.
The Golden Sower Committee maintains a web page (www.goldensower.org) on the Nebraska Library Association website. The site enables children, librarians, and teachers from across Nebraska to view current Golden Sower nominees. It is also used to promote quality literature for children and young adults.
