Great Stone Face Voting, 2016-17

Great Stone Face voting takes place during the month of April.  Ballots are cast by children in grades 4-6 in libraries and schools all over the state.  Librarians then tally those votes and send them to the Great Stone Face Committee for inclusion in the grand total.

The current contact for sending your votes is Sarah Hydorn, Amherst Public LibraryThe deadline for receiving votes is April 30, so if you are mailing your votes, please make sure to allow enough time for them to arrive.  The votes are tallied and the results are announced at the annual spring NHLA or NHSLMA conference. This year, we’ll announce the results at the NHLA Spring Conference on May 5.

Online voting is encouraged, but we are happy to accept votes via email or snailmail, too—whichever method you’re most comfortable using.  You may print out a tally form by clicking here. We appreciate your time and energy in promoting the Great Stone Face List in your town! The link to the online voting form is HERE.

Online voting is EASY and FUN! We had great results with this new method of tabulating votes last year, and we’d like to get even more people participating in our online vote this year.  Sarah Hydorn promises that she’ll still email you, to let you know that, yes, your votes really did get added to the total—so we’re not losing the personal touch!  It’s just that with online voting, the actual counting is so much easier, and probably more accurate!  Give it a try—you’ll be glad you did.  And, we will be very glad you did!
