Silver Birch Award

1994-
English



Originally, there was only one award, but this changed in 1996 when the award was split to separately recognize fiction and non-fiction. Children from grades 3, 4, 5, and 6 chose winners from a short list of 20 fiction and non-fiction titles. Children can qualify to vote for fiction and/or non-fiction if they read a minimum of five titles from either, or both, list(s). Winners receive a tactile image of a silver birch tree.
