YRCA 2015 – Young Readers’ Choice Award
– the oldest children’s choice award in North America!
Kids in Grades 4-9 are invited to participate in the Junior and Intermediate Division in Red Deer. Read at least two titles from these divisions before March 2015 (or read them all), then cast your vote for your favourite. Red Deer Public Library makes sure we have lots of copies of the YRCA titles. They will be in a special display at your nearest branch. Sometimes some of them are hard to find because they’re so popular so visit our Bibliocommons catalogue to place a hold if you can’t find the one you’re looking for! Most school libraries should also have copies of the YRCA books.
Teachers! If you teach Grades 4–12, then the Young Reader’s Choice Award 2015 is an excellent way to introduce your kids to a variety of novels and get them excited about reading. Your students will be encouraged to read for enjoyment and vote for their favourite titles in March to determine which authors will win an award. Book RDPL staff to come to your school to introduce nominated titles to your students with lively book talks. Call your local RDPL branch today to book a YRCA presentation.
