The Mark Twain Award was invented to provide the children of Missouri with their very own source to enrich their lives through reading.
Missouri students in grades four through eight are eligible to vote for their favorite book if they have read to them or read themselves, at least FOUR of the titles on the list.
Each school or qualifying group will design it's own ballots. Each student gets ONE vote. Votes are tallied by each school or group on a tally sheet provided by the Mark Twain Award Committee. The tally MUST BE POSTMARKED BY MARCH 26.
