Book Awards

The Dorothy Canfield Fisher Award

Each year, thirty fiction books are nominated for the DCF Award. Students who read 5 from the list may vote. WES students in grades 4-6 participate in this award by learning about the nominated books each fall, reading some of them, and voting if they read at least five. Ask your student about our "Mini-tweet" bulletin board where they can write a short shout out about ones they've read.

The Red Clover Book Award

This book award is given to one of ten picture books nominated each year in Vermont. The winner is determined by highest number of votes from Kindergarten-4th grade students who participate. WES students participate by hearing the books during library classes and then cast their vote in April.
