Winners have been announced for the 2017 Buckaroo, Indian Paintbrush, and Soaring Eagle book awards, as voted upon by Wyoming K-12 students. K-3 students picked the Buckaroo winners, students in grades 4-6 selected the Indian Paintbrush winners, and those in grades 7-12 voted for the Soaring Eagle Award.
These award programs help children become acquainted with the best contemporary books and authors, learn what qualities make a good book, and set reading goals. Each award honors an author whose books Wyoming students have enjoyed. These awards are a joint project of the Wyoming State Reading Council and the Wyoming Library Association.
