PINE ISLAND – Seven Pine Island students participated in this year’s Maud Hart Lovelace book award voting for the State of Minnesota. Students in grades 3-8 are invited to take part in the voting.  

Division 1 (grades 3-5) and Division 2 (grades 6-8) each has twelve nominated books, with three titles that cross over onto both lists. Once a student has read three of the titles, they are eligible to vote for their favorite to win the Maud Hart Lovelace award.

For Division 1, “Because of Mr. Terupt”  by Rob Buyea and “Quar-terback Season” by Fred Bow-en tied as the Pine Island students’ favorite. For Division 2, the winner was “Between Shades of Gray” by Ruta Sepetys. Their votes will be submitted to the Minnesota Youth Reading Award Committee to be counted along with other students from across Minnesota.

The statewide winner will be announced on Maud Hart Love-lace’s birthday, April 25.
