Red Cedar Book Awards

The Red Cedar is British Columbia's Young Reader's Choice book award. Every year thousands of children between grades 4 and 7 from across the province are invited to read books from the nominated lists of non-fiction and fiction titles and vote for their favourite.

The purpose of the program is to promote quality Canadian literature and to enrich and broaden a student's reading experience.  The Red Cedar Book Awards are "launched" every November during Canadian Children's Book week and students have the next six months to read and decide which one of the titles on the list they feel is the best Canadian book of the year.
