The Committee wishes to note that not all books are appropriate for all grade levels. Discretionary steps should be taken by the teacher, librarian and student. We encourage strongly that teachers and librarians read the books prior to promoting them to their students.

After students have read at least 3 of the nominated books, they may submit their winning book for the Heartland Award.
