Eliot Rosewater Book List

Eliot Rosewater Indiana HS Winners

The Eliot Rosewater Indiana High School Book Award (Rosie Award) is chosen annually by students across Indiana in grades nine through twelve. Students at participating high schools and public libraries who read any of approximately 25 nominated books are eligible to rate each book they’ve read. Ballots are available on the Rosie website. The votes are tabulated each May, and the winner is announced.

The purpose of the Rosie Award is to encourage high school students to read for fun. It also promotes cooperation between school administrators, media specialists, teachers and public librarians in broadening reading programs. Rosie promotes reading across the curriculum.
