Texas Bluebonnet Award 2017–2018
All school libraries, public libraries, and home school associations are encouraged to participate in Texas Bluebonnet Award. The program is aimed at students in grades 3-6. Participating students must read a minimum of five books from the current master list before they may vote for their favorite title. Teachers and parents are encouraged to read some of the books aloud. The author of the book receiving the most votes statewide is declared the winner of the Texas Bluebonnet Award. At the TLA annual conference, ten children, selected randomly, who participated in the reading and voting present the author with the Bluebonnet Award.
JLG titles comprised 65% of the list.
