Rochelle Garfinkel, librarian from Marlboro School, made a buncee for the Red Clover Award and Dorothy Canfield Fisher Award.

What’s the Red Clover Award? Let’s let students from Underhill ID School in Vermont tell us all about it.

Here are the 2017-2018 Red Clover Award Nominees!

We will upload activities to the Educator Resources page and continue to update them as they become available.

Be sure to visit the Red Clover Award website where you’ll find lots of great links, activities and resources for this year’s nominees, along with past nominees and award winners. Thanks to committee members (and school librarians) Carol Scrimgeour and Carrie Speranza for all your hard work!

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.

The Red Clover Award is co-sponsored by the Vermont Center for the Book / Mother Goose Programs and the Vermont Department of Libraries. The Fall 2016 conference was co-sponsored by the Vermont School Library Association.
