Last week, students voted on their favorite book from the 2016-17 VSBA Middle School division nominee list.  Students who read at least three of the nominated books could vote.  Page students voted on April 21st and received a cupcake or cookie when they voted.  The Volunteer State Book Award is sponsored annually by the Tennessee Library Association and the Tennessee Association of School Librarians. Each year, children across Tennessee are asked to read books from a list of nominated titles.  The Volunteer State Book Award has four divisions–Primary (K-2nd Grade), Intermediate (Grades 3rd-5th), Middle School (Grades 6-8), and high school (grades 9-12).  In the spring, those students who have read or listened to at least three of the titles from the list are eligible to vote for their favorite titles. These votes are tabulated and sent to the state organization. The book with the most votes statewide wins the award. The author of the book receives a plaque and is invited to Tennessee to receive the award.  Without further ado, this year’s winner at Page Middle School is…

at tie!  We had a tie between

 The Inventor’s Secret by Andrea Cremer and  The Thickety: A Path Begins by J.A. White.

Thanks to all of the students who read and voted.  See you next year!
