AIS Bluebonnet Books 2019-2020

Every year our students have the chance to participate in the Texas Bluebonnet Award Program. This contest allows students across the state to read 5 books from a list of 20 titles selected by teachers and librarians as the best books published the previous year. After reading 5 (or more) of the titles, students participate in a state-wide vote (in January)to select one author to receive an award at the Texas State Library Association (TLA) Conference. This is the only student selected book award in the state. For more information, please visit TLA or the Bluebonnet Resources Page. These are this year's nominees:
