The Buckaroo Book Award is an award given annually to books nominated and voted on by children in Kindergarten, First, Second and Third grades in Wyoming. The award is sponsored by the Wyoming Library Association and the Wyoming State Reading Council.

The Indian Paintbrush Book Award provides an opportunity for Wyoming youth in fourth, fifth, and sixth grades to choose their favorite book from a list of 10 nominees and honor its author. The Indian Paintbrush Award is unique in that Wyoming students nominate the books as well as vote for the award winner. The philosophy of the Indian Paintbrush Award is to empower students to recognize and read quality contemporary children’s literature.

The Soaring Eagle Book Award provides the opportunity for Wyoming youth in grades 7-12 to select a favorite book and honor its author.
