Join the White Pine Club at our School Library!
The School Library is pleased to run the White Pine Provincial Reading Award Program each year. This year, it will run from November through May.
The White Pine Awardâ„˘ reading program offers high school teens at all grade levels the opportunity to read the best of Canada's recent young adult fiction and non-fiction titles. Students read from 10 nominated Canadian young adult books in either category and then vote for their favourite book. Based on student voting across the province, the most popular book is then selected and author is honoured with the White Pine Awardâ„˘.
The goals of the White Pine Awardâ„˘ program are:
to promote reading for enjoyment among high school students
to make students aware of quality Canadian young adult books
to provide opportunities for students to discuss these novels in an authentic manner
Students who participate benefit from lunchtime discussions of the books, draws for prizes, involvement with other teens who enjoy reading, and the opportunity to participate in an out-of-school White Pine excursion.
Students who have read the nominated titles, will be invited to attend an area conference in April.
