West Virginia Children's Choice Book Awards
"Children from across the state [of West Virginia] read books from the nominees list then voted for
their favorite book. The award is based solely on the children's votes and thereby allows young
readers to have a voice about the types of books they enjoy and would read more often."
"The West Virginia Children's Choice Book Award's purpose is to 'enrich the lives of children grades three through six by encouraging reading books of literary quality.' Established in 1981 by teachers Joyce Lang and Patty Benedum, the program was administered through the West Virginia Children's Book Award Committee until 2007. It is now hosted by the West Virginia Center for the Book at the West Virginia Library Commission, located in Charleston."
