Bluestem 2021

  • What is the Bluestem Award? 

    The award is for students in grades 3-5 who are ready for longer titles than those found on the Monarch list, but not quite ready for the sophistication of some of the Rebecca Caudill titles. The award can include both timeless classics and contemporary titles. You may even find some titles on the Bluestem list that are also on the Monarch and/or Caudill lists.

    Who can participate?

    Anyone in grades 3-5 can participate. 

    How many books do I need to read/listen to in order to vote?

    You must read at least four books in order to vote.
