The purpose of the JUNIOR BOOK CATEGORY is to encourage students in grades 4 through 6 to become better acquainted with noteworthy writers of contemporary books, to broaden their awareness of literature as a means of personal satisfaction and as a lifelong pursuit, and to give recognition and honor to their favorite books and authors.
