Bluebonnet Award Voting
Our 3rd through 6th graders have the opportunity to vote for which book they think should win the Texas Bluebonnet Award. Voters must read and pass the AR test on at least 5 of the 20 books nominated, and our 2017 voting party was on January 27. Our voters enjoyed an ice cream sundae, voted, and received their T-shirt. Each voter will also be recognized on awards day in May with an award certificate.
