I have just received word that I have been honored with the state of Wisconsin's "Golden Archer Award"! Receiving a state award is an incredible feeling, because the awards are voted on by the students themselves. And in the case of The Golden Archer Award, the students also nominate the books in the first place! This year, Punk Farm took the top prize in the primary division.
To all of the teachers and librarians in Wisconsin, everyone on the Golden Archer committee and especially to all of the kids who voted for Punk Farm, a hearty and rocking "THANK YOU, WISCONSIN!!!!!"
