The Nutmeg Book Award is our state literary award for children and young adult literature. There are 4 divisions to this award, Elementary, Intermediate Teen and High School. Books are nominated by a select group of teachers, librarians and students. Students all over Connecticut read the nominees and vote on their favorite book in April. Here are the nominees for this year's elementary (grades 2-3) and intermediate (grades 4-6) Nutmeg Book Awards.
