“Since 1976 when sixteen schools participated, the South Carolina Book Award program created by the South Carolina Association of School Librarians has expanded to include almost 64,000 participating students.

The program includes a vetting process for each of the four levels of books:  Picture Book, Children’s, Junior and Young Adult.

Committees composed of school librarians, teachers, parents and students select a list of 20 books for each level. Students who have read a minimum of three books (five books for picture book level) vote in February each year for the book they feel is the best. The winning authors are honored at the association’s annual conference held each March.”
