Bluebonnet Book Program - Due January 30th

"Texas Bluebonnet Award is a unique program that encourages reading for pleasure and is aimed at students in grades 3-6. Each year, 20 books are chosen as the “Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List” by the Texas Bluebonnet Award selection committee.

If students read a minimum of five books from the current master list (or have the books read aloud to them), they have the opportunity to vote for their favorite title during the month of January each year. The author of the book receiving the most votes statewide is declared the winner of the Texas Bluebonnet Award."

After each book that students read, they should fill out the form below. Once they have read and completed 5 forms, they can attend the Nichols Bluebonnet Celebration! The deadline for reading and completing the 5 books is Friday, January 30th.
