Video: Kickin’ it Old School with Newbery and Caldecott
Good ol’ CSPAN2.
Having attended the Youth Media Awards for the first time this year, I encountered high levels of enjoyment when I came upon CSPAN2 footage of the YMA announcements from January 15, 2001, when the world of librarianship was just a twinkle in my eye. It’s pretty clear to see that the event has grown in the decade since.
A related aside: I have to say, I really like that they used to actually hold up the winning books – even though they go the PowerPoint route these days, they should still hold up the books.
Take a look (bonus points if you can remember which books won without checking):
