The Flume Award
Are you a teen in grade 9-12? The state of New Hampshire wants you! You're needed to nominate titles for the 2016 Flume Award list.
If you've read a particularly good book and wish to nominate it for inclusion, fill out the simple nomination form found here. (And by simple I mean there are only 4 questions!)
There are only a few requirements. Titles may be fiction or nonfiction and must
1. Be nominated by teens in grades 9-12.
2. Appeal to teens in grades 9-12.
3. Have a publication date within the past two years.
4. Be "stand-alone" titles, that is, if the book is part of a series, the reader need not have read any of the other books in the series to understand the plot and characters.
The deadline for nominations is Friday, January 29. The Flume Award committee then reads and discusses the titles and compiles the Flume Award reading list. The Flume Award reading list will be announced in March. Teens vote for their favorite title during Teen Read Week, October 9-15, 2016.
Here are the books that have won the Flume Award over the past 10 years:
In addition to book format, most are available in formats such audiobooks and ebooks. We even have three of the titles in Chinese, for those of you who are studying that language!
