• Texas Bluebonnet Award Reading Program

    Bluebonnets 

    The Texas Bluebonnet Award Reading Program is run by the Texas Library Association. Each year the selection committee takes suggestions from students, teachers, parents, and librarians from around the state of Texas to help create the master list of twenty books. This list serves as the nomination list for the Texas Bluebonnet Award. Schools register to promote the books on the master list through fun activities with grades three through six. Students in these grades that have read, or have heard read aloud, at least five books from the list are eligible to vote on their favorite. Voting takes place during the month of January, and the award winner is announced at the Texas Library Association Annual Conference in April. 

     

    Green Elementary students in 3rd through 6th grade are eligible to participate in this optional reading program. Ms. Harrop will review the program several times during library time between August 2019 and January 2020. Students are responsible for tracking which books from this year’s list they have read. Students can check in at any time to see how many forms have been received by Ms. Harrop. Click HERE to access a printable book mark!
