The Rebecca Caudill Young Readers' Book Award (Grades 4-8)

The Rebecca Caudill Young Readers' Book Award is an annual award given to the author of the book voted most outstanding by students in grades four through eight in participating Illinois schools.

The award is named in honor of Rebecca Caudill who lived and wrote in Urbana, Illinois, for nearly 50 years. The award is given in recognition for her literary talent and the universal appeal of her books which have touched the hearts of many children and young adults.

Any school in Illinois with students enrolled in any of the grades four through eight and agreeing to meet the requirements may participate in the program. Any public library in Illinois serving students in grades four through eight (from schools that are not registered to participate) and agreeing to meet the requirements, may participate in the program.

This award is administered by the Rebecca Caudill Young Readers' Book Award Steering Committee. ISLMA is one of the cooperating organizations for the award. Bonita Slovinski, committee chair, fields most questions. She can be contacted at bslovinski@naperville203.org.
