The Prairie Pasque Children's Book Award, sponsored by the South Dakota Library Association, is determined by fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students throughout the state. Students are encouraged to read and vote for their favorite book of the year from the masterlist of 10 titles on a three star scale. The book receiving the most votes from students wins the award. Books nominated for the award are selected by a committee of educators and librarians. A student may vote only for a book that he/she has read. Voting takes place at participating schools throughout the yaer. The book award committee tallies votes from all participating school and announces the winner during National Library Week in April.

YARP

Each year the Young Adult Reading Program (YARP) Committee of the South Dakota Library Association publishes a list to promote quality literature and to help South Dakota teachers and librarians in selecting and promoting books for adolescents. The books are selected from among the many young adult and adult books that have received positive reviews by national reviewing periodicals. YARP committee chair Kerri Smith.
