THE CHARLOTTE AWARDS


Named for the main character in E. B. White's Charlotte's Web, the purpose of the Charlotte Award is to encourage students to read outstanding literature and ultimately become lifelong readers. NYSRA presented the first Charlotte Awards in 1990.  Click here for a complete list of winning books and authors to date.

Students in New York State will read titles on the ballot voting for their favorites in each category. Ballots must be received by April 15, 2021.

Votes will be tallied, and winners will receive their awards at the NYSRA Conference in November 2021.  Click here to vote!
