The Red Clover Award
is a Vermont Award chosen by
K-Grade 4 Vermont students.
Ten picture books, published in the previous year, are chosen by a committee of Vermont parents and educators as Red Clover Nominees. Vermont K-4 students who have read or listened to the books may vote for their favorite title in April in our library. Click to learn more!

Vermont's schoolchildren have spoken! After months of careful reading and guidance from school and public librarians, teachers, and parents, over 20,000 children in grades K-12 have voted for winners in each of Vermont's three children-selected book awards.
The Red Clover Book Award, begun in 1997 and co-facilitated by the Vermont Department of Libraries, Vermont Center for the Book, and Vermont Agency of Education, was given to the picture book Shh! We Have a Plan by Chris Haughton.
