Children's Award Winners

Award Description

The Arkansas Diamond Primary Book Award was established by the Arkansas Elementary School Council in 1998 to encourage reading for students in Grades K-3. The name of the award reflects that Arkansas is the only diamond producing state.

The Diamond Primary Book Award winner is selected in April by students in kindergarten, first, second, and third grades. Children in Grades K-3 must have read or been read at least three of the books from the annual selection list in order to vote. Children may vote for only one title.
