ACS is excited to be expanding our part in the NC Book Awards program for the 2015-16 school year. While the primary grades have been voting for the Children's Book Award for the past three years, our older students will now be able to have in say in which book is chosen to be North Carolina's favorite.  In addition to the Children's Book Award, students will have the opportunity to vote for Junior Book, Middle School Book, and High School Book award winners, depending upon their grade level. Students are encouraged to start reading the nominees now in order to be able to vote for their favorite in the spring!
