Forwarding on behalf of Oregon Reader's Choice Awards Co-Chairs.   Please send replies/questions to:  orca at olaweb.org<mailto:orca at olaweb.org>

This year we held the 4th annual Oregon Reader's Choice Award, co-sponsored by 3 OLA divisions (OASL, CSD, OYAN), along with the Oregon Reading Association and the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association.

This year there were 2635 students who read the books and voted for for the award. We had about 60 schools participate, representing 23 school districts, the Portland Archdiocese, and independent private schools. We also had 6 public libraries participate, representing 4 library districts. All of the names of the participating institutions will be posted on the OLA website, on the ORCA homepage.

Upper Elementary (Junior) Division Winner, out of 1831 votes

Pie by Sarah Weeks

Middle School (Intermediate) Division Winner, out of 487 votes

Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life by James Patterson

High School (Senior) Division Winner, out of 253 votes

Divergent by Veronica Roth

We would like to thank all of the libraries and schools that participated, plus the members of the ORCA committee for making all of this happen. We do firmly believe that this award has proven to be a great program to promote reading among children and young adults throughout the state. The 2014-2015 ORCA committee will soon select the nominees for the 2014 award, and those will also be posted on the ORCA website shortly. We do hope that all of you will help to promote the ORCA to Oregon youths where you can.
