Sequoyah Children's Book Award


Sequoyah Children's Book Award

The Sequoyah Book Awards program encourages the students of Oklahoma to read books of literary quality.

Students in grades 3-5 who have read or listened to at least three titles from the Children's Masterlist are eligible to vote for the Children's Sequoyah Book Award.

Students vote for a favorite title in March.  Winners are announced in April.

The books on the Sequoyah Masterlists are selected by the Sequoyah Reading Teams. Criteria for selection include: published three years prior to the award date, author lives in the United States, originality, literary quality, interest, appeal, and developmentally appropriate for the designated age level.
