School Registration


The Children’s Literature Festival is targeted to 4th, 5th, and 6th graders in the Northeast Missouri region.  We encourage schools in this area to register for the festival any time between the months of October and January but before the deadline of February 1, 2018. 

Schools (including home-schooling groups) need to send a list of the classes that will be attending (listed by teacher’s name and number of students in each class) with the accompanying form linked below.

Schools will also need to determine whether a morning or an afternoon session will work best for the transportation needs of the students.  Morning sessions run from 9 am – 11 am and afternoon sessions run from 12:15 – 2:15 p.m.  

Each class of students will be assigned three author sessions to attend. The festival committee determines these session assignments based on student reading level and interest while keeping in mind the room occupancy constraints in the Student Union.

The committee will send out session assignments as quickly as possible after all schools have registered – usually by March 1, allowing the teachers to prepare the students for the authors that they will see.
