Sunshine State Young Readers Award

Sunshine State Young Readers Award

Each year the state of Florida selects fifteen books for K-2nd students and fifteen books for 3rd-5th grade.  It is sponsored by the Florida Department of Education and Florida Association for Media in Education (FAME).  The main purpose is to motivate students to read a variety of books and encourage the love of reading.

Lake Whitney Supports SSYRA Jr. and SSYRA books!
We encourage Kindergarten-2nd grade students to read all fifteen SSYRA Jr. books and 3rd-5th grade students to read all fifteen SSYRA books by May.  Students will be able to participate in a fun celebration in May if all 15 books are read.  Students who read at least three books will be able to participate in a statewide vote on his/her favorite SSYRA Jr. or SSYRA book!
