Award description

As a reading educator or secondary student in the state of Pennsylvania, teachers, librarians, MS and HS students have a unique opportunity to read the latest quality fiction and non-fiction books published.   Participating in the Keystone Book Awards Program sponsored by the Keystone State Reading Association is a great learning opportunity as well as a way to pick the winning books for author awards in the state of Pennsylvania. Two divisions are provided—Elementary and Secondary. 
The Keystone to Elementary Book Awards is divided into three sub-groups: Preschool (Pre-K), Primary (K-3), and Intermediate (4-6), and an educator must oversee the participation of students.  Teachers agree to read a specified number of books to their students from the appropriate list (three preschool, four primary, or three intermediate) or have the books available for independent reading in their classrooms.
The secondary division includes a Middle School list for 6th -8th graders; middle school students must participate through an educator. The High School list is available for 9th-12th graders, and participation may be sent in by educators or individual students.  Students must have read at least 4 of the books from the list to participate.
Books chosen for the list are current publications that have been read and voted to the list by a committee of PA reading educators.  Additional resources, including annotated booklists, participation guidelines and forms, as well as the lists of previous winners can be found on the KSRA website at  www.ksrapa.org under Resources.  Student votes must be turned in by March 15th.
