The White Pine Award™ is a provincial reading program for high school students sponsored by the Ontario Library Association. Students will read 10 nominated Canadian young adult books and then vote for their favourite book (they must read a minimum of 5 to be eligible to vote). Based on student voting across the province, the most popular book is then selected and author is honoured with the White Pine Award™.
Goals of the White Pine Award™ Reading Program:
• to promote reading for enjoyment among high school students • to make students aware of quality Canadian young adult books • to provide opportunities for students to discuss the nominated titles in an authentic manner
