The reviewer training form will open in a new browser window or tab and ask for your…

  • name and email address

  • format preference (i.e. paper, e-book, or both)

  • address (only required if you’re accepting paper review copies)

You’ll then be able to take a short, 10-question multiple-choice quiz OR ask for further training (including a one-on-one session with one of our awards directors).

* Although not required, all reviewers are encouraged to use this form each year. :-)
