Sunshine State Young Reader's Award Program

 
 
A statewide reading motivation program, the Sunshine State Young Reader's Award Program (SSYRA) is for students in grades 3 - 5. The purpose of the program is to encourage students to read independently for personal satisfaction, based on interest rather than reading level. A list of 15 books are chosen by a committee of Florida librarians for students to select. The students track their progress in the library and end the program by voting in the statewide balloting for their favorite book of the year.
