Virginia Readers' Choice Program

The Virginia Readers' Choice Program is sponsored by the Virginia State Reading Association. Each year 10 books are nominated on different age levels. Students are to read or listen to at least 4 of the 10 books and then vote for the book that they liked the best. The voting takes place on Read Across America Day. The books that receive the most votes from throughout the state of Virginia will receive the Virginia Readers' Choice Award.
