The Volunteer State Book Award is sponsored annually by the Tennessee Library Association and the Tennessee Association of School Librarians. Each year, children across Tennessee are asked to read books from a list of nominated titles. The Volunteer State Book Award has four divisions--Primary (K-2nd Grade), Intermediate (Grades 3rd-5th), Middle School (Grades 6-8), and high school (grades 9-12). In the spring, those students who have read or listened to at least three of the titles from the list are eligible to vote for their favorite titles. These votes are tabulated and sent to the state organization. The book with the most votes statewide wins the award. The author of the book receives a plaque and is invited to Tennessee to receive the award.
Submit a Review
We invite students who read the Volunteer State Book Award nominated titles to submit a review in our Library Catalog.
To write a review, login to the library catalog using your personal login information. You may obtain your login from the librarians.
Once you have logged in to the library catalog, search for the title of the book for which you wish to write a review. You may also use the links to the books in this LibGuide. Once you open the record for the book, select the "Reviews" tab at the top of the record for that book. From this tab, you may read previously submitted reviews. You may also add a new review for the book. All reviews are subject to review by the librarians before they are made available for others to read.
