The Red Clover Award promotes the reading and discussion of the best of contemporary picture books in nearly all of Vermont's elementary schools. Each year over 20,000 K-4 students read, or have read to them, the ten nominated books (download list).

The Red Clover Award is co-sponsored by the Vermont Center for the Book / Mother Goose Programs, the Vermont Department of Libraries and the Vermont Agency of Education.



The application for a FREE set of Red Clover nominees is now available (download). Remember: in order to be eligible, your school must be a Vermont elementary school that participates in the Red Clover program (vote tally must be sent by April 11, 2014) and complete an evaluation form. If you need an evaluation form or if you have questions, please email Wendy or call 802-875-2751.

The current Red Clover Educator Resource Guide is available by calling 802-875-2751, ext. 107 (to order using a credit card) or mail your check for $31 (includes shipping) to Vermont Center for the Book, P.O. Box 423, Chester, VT 05143. A receipt will be included in the package.

While our website is under (re)construction, nominees for the 2014-2015 award are posted on the VT Department of Libraries website.

Most of the activities in the new guide are based on the Vermont Framework of Standards (and the new Common Core State Standards) and provide dynamic and thoughtful learning experiences for children. Extending the discussions and activities will help to address even more.
