QR Codes and Book Trailers for VRC Books. Check them out!

To become a qualified voter, students must be exposed to at least four of the nominated books at each level in their entirety by reading themselves, having them read aloud to them, or a combination of the two. Students may participate in the Virginia Readers’ Choice Program through a
public library, school library, or classroom. Each qualified voter has one vote for
his/her favorite book at each level. A participant may vote at more than one level –
for instance a middle student may choose to vote for a middle level title and an
elementary level title.
