Sunshine State Young Readers Award


These titles are selected each year by FAME, Florida Association for Media in Education. These titles are available for students at PIA and your public library. Students in grades k-8 can read the books to earn Brag Tags. Younger children can have the book read to them. After reading a SSYRA book visit the Media Center and take a quiz. After passing the quiz, students will receive a Brag Tag. There are 15 titles on each list. Collect all 15 tags for your grade level.

*Please be careful with the Brag Tags. We will not be able to replace any lost tags.
