Serving Students & Staff in Grades 4 - 8!

Books unite us. Books encourage boundless exploration and allow readers to spread their wings. Stories give flight to new ideas and perspectives. Reading—especially books that set us free—expands our worldview. Censorship, on the other hand, locks away our freedom and divides us from humanity in our own cages.

The Chickadee Award program is for students in kindergarten through fourth grade throughout the state of Maine. The goal is for children to develop an appreciation of outstanding writing and illustration in current children’s picture books & hope students will become discriminating readers by voting for their favorite book.

The Maine Student Book Award is designed to expand literary horizons of students in grades 4-8 by encouraging them to read, evaluate, and enjoy a selection of new books and to choose a statewide favorite by ballot each spring. Here's a doc with links to book trailers for some of the nominees.
