The ORCA

The Oregon Reader’s Choice Award was started in 2010 as a way for Oregon children and young adults to read high quality, popular books and select the best of the best.

Use the links above to view the nominees for the 2013-2014 school year.  You can also post your comments about the books after you have read them.  After reading, or listening to, 2 or more books from one of the lists, you will be able to vote for your favorite book between March 1 and March 31, 2014.

The winners for the 2012-13 school year are:
Junior (Upper Elementary) Division: Meanwhile: Pick Any Path, 3856 Story Possibilities by Jason Shiga
Intermediate (Middle School) Division: Smile by Raina Telgemeier
Senior (High School) Division: Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

    I just found out that “Elephant Run” won the intermediate 2011 ORCA! What a fabulous honor! Thank you!

  2. Could you please explain exactly how readers vote on their favorite book from the nominated books list?

      Schools and libraries have their readers vote, and then they send their results to the ORCA committee. It’s up to each individual school and library to set up their votings, as long as they happen between March 1 and March 31.
