About the Truman Readers Award
Age Level
The winner of the annual Truman Readers Award is selected by students in grades six through eight.
The Truman Readers Award encourages students in the early teen years to express their unique voice through exploring new literary genres, communicating with their peers about young adult literature, and honoring authors writing for young teens.
Guidelines for Choosing Books
  1. Books should interest early teens in grades six through eight.
  2. Books should be written by an author living in the United States.
  3. Books should be of literary value which may enrich early teens' personal lives.
  4. Books should be published two years prior to nomination on a Master List of 12 nominees. (Currently 2015)
  5. Some consideration should be given to genre diversity, gender representation, range of reading level, racial diversity, and diversity of social, political, economic, and religious viewpoints.
