About

A unique program that encourages reading for pleasure for students in grades 3 - 6.

Each year, 20 books are chosen for the Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List. Schools and libraries around the state participate in the program, encouraging students to read a minimum of five books from the list. In January, students vote for their favorite title. The author of the book receiving the most votes is the winner of the Texas Bluebonnet Award (TBA) which is presented at the Texas Bluebonnet Award Luncheon held during the TLA Annual Conference in the spring.

Register online to participate in the Texas Bluebonnet Award. You can print and mail the registration form and check if you prefer. Can’t remember if you’ve registered yet? Check your institution’s registration status.
