The Sequoyah Book Award is a set of three annual awards for books selected by vote of Oklahoma schoolchildren. The Sequoyah Children's Book Award, now voted by children in grades 3 to 5, was show more inaugurated in 1959.[1] (Thus it is the third oldest U.S. state children's choice award[1] after the original Kansas award and Vermont award.) The Sequoyah Intermediate Book Award is voted by grades 6 to 8. It dates from 1988, as the Young Adult award until the Sequoyah High School Book Award (grades 9–12) was added to the program for 2010.[1] The Sequoyah Committee also selects the "Donna Norvell Award" for easy reader books, Pre-K-2nd grades. However, this award is chosen by the committee members and not by the students themselves. All four awards are sponsored by the Oklahoma Library Association.[1][2] The award program is named after Sequoyah (c. 1770–1843), the Cherokee man who developed the Cherokee syllabary—a writing system adopted by Cherokee Nation in 1825. show less
