Rebecca Caudill Award
The Rebecca Caudill Award books are nominated by children in grades 4 through 8 and a master list of 20 titles is sent to participating elementary and middle schools. Students read at least three of the books on the list and then are able to vote for their favorites each February. The winner, chosen only by children grades 4 through 8, is then announced in March. For more information on the Rebecca Caudill Award, click here.
