Teen Read Voting (YARP)
Young Adult Reading Program (YARP)
About the Contest
Each year the SD YARP Committee
publishes a list to promote quality literature and to help South Dakota teachers and librarians in selecting and promoting books for adolescents. The books are selected from among the many young adult and adult books that have received positive reviews by national reviewing periodicals.
Sponsored by the South Dakota Library Association, the contest features two lists of 16 nominated titles for middle school and high school students.
How to Vote
To qualify to vote, students read a book from the YARP Reading List
then vote at YARP Voting and then give the book a star rating of one to five with five being the best. The book receiving the most stars on each list receives the SD YARP award. To receive your free McDonald's smoothie visit the Public Library and tell us which book your read. All links needed are below.
