The Vermont Golden Dome Book Award (formerly the Dorothy Canfield Fisher Children’s Book Award) annually recognizes one new American  children’s book selected by the vote of  Vermont schoolchildren. It was inaugurated in 1957. The award is co-sponsored by the Vermont State PTA and the Vermont Department of Libraries and was originally named after the Vermont writer  Dorothy Canfield Fisher. In 2020, it was temporarily renamed the “VT Middle-Grade Book Award” before schoolchildren voted to officially call it the “Vermont Golden Dome Book Award”.

The Red Clover Book Award is designed for children in kindergarten through fourth grade. Each year thousands of Vermont school children read the 10 nominated picture books and vote for their favorite in the spring. The award has been handed out annually since 1997.

The Green Mountain Book Award, initiated in 2005, is a reader’s choice award for Vermont students in grades 9 – 12. The program is intended to encourage high schoolers to become enthusiastic and discriminating readers.
