South Carolina Children's Book Award Program
 
Students in grades 3-5 are encouraged to participate in the SCCBA Program each year.  Students are introduced to 20 nominated titles in the fall of the year and are asked to read as many of the titles as they can by the middle of February.  Students who have read at least five of the nominated titles are invited to come to the Voting Pizza Party in the Media Center and cast their vote for the book they enjoyed the most.   Our school votes are then tallied with all of the votes from other schools around the state.  The book with the most votes is named the South Carolina Children's Book Award Winner for that year.
