An Annual Award for the Best Book as Chosen by the Students of Kentucky

The Kentucky Bluegrass Award is a student choice program. The KBA promotes and encourages Kentucky students in kindergarten through grade 12 to read a variety of quality literature. All Kentucky public and private schools, as well as public libraries, are welcome to participate in the program.

2014 KBA Luncheon

Plan now to attend the Kentucky Bluegrass Award Luncheon during the KLA/KASL Joint Conference on September 20, 2014 at the Galt House in Louisville. The featured author for the luncheon will be Mary Amato author of the 2014 KBA nominee Guitar Notes and the 2010 KBA nominee The Chicken of the Family. Additional information about Mary Amato is available on her website.

The Kentucky Bluegrass Award program is graciously supported by the Kentucky Reading Association, the Kentucky Association of School Librarians, and the Kentucky Department of Library and Archives. Please consult the KBA Partners page for more information about these generous supporters.
