Online Voting Link

All votes are due by May 25, 2020 (deadline has been extended due to Covid). Surveys will automatically close at midnight.

STUDENT VOTING LINK: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MDBES2020

Please use this link for students to cast their votes AND for librarians & teachers to enter bulk votes. All votes submitted at this address will be counted towards the final vote. Please do not post the link publicly.  We want to ensure that only Maryland students are voting.

REMINDERS: 
  • LIVE Link in Members Only Area! Because of our new and improved MASL website, the LIVE voting links will be available online to MASL Members. MASL Members will need to login to get to the live link. Schools requesting to be added to the email distribution list for voting will still be emailed the links (like this email!).
  • Combined Voting: All voting links have been combined into one survey to reduce the need to complete multiple surveys if voting in multiple categories.
  • ALL Maryland Public Schools have been added to the list.  Unless your school is new as of this year, it should be included in the list.  There is no need to do a participation request ever again 
  • Schools Not Listed:  Instead of sending a participation request and then voting, students and teachers can request to be added and place their votes from the same link.
  • Bulk Voting Submissions: Teachers and Librarians can input their bulk votes from the voting link.
  • Images of Books: All categories include a thumbnail image of the book cover.
  • Picture Books/Multiple Choice: The picture books are included in one question, so you no longer have to worry about a student choosing more than one option.
Please share this information with any school that is interested in voting.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at [email protected].
Happy Voting!
