The Rocky Mountain Book Award is a literary program designed for young readers in Alberta. This program provides children the opportunity to be involved, have fun, and see that their opinions matter.
Children aged nine to thirteen (Grades 4 to 7) read from a selection of twenty Canadian books chosen for their literary, cultural and enjoyment factors. The books have generally been published within two or three years of selection and include fiction and non-fiction.
The RMBA was established in Lac La Biche with young readers in mind and serves to achieve the following objectives:
- to promote quality Canadian Literature;
- to participate in and promote a regional program that will encourage young readers;
- to promote literacy;
- to foster a love of reading.
This program has been traditionally held at the Aurora Middle School in the library during recess/lunch hour but will now be 100% online. This allows for a wider range of participants including homeschooling or schooling at home students.
To participate and have a chance to win a prize you must read at least 2 titles listed on the Reading Log. Then you will submit the log with your ratings on or before March 31st.
