Hey Hinsdale Central!  The Abraham Lincoln Readers’ Choice Award is awarded annually to the author of the book voted as most outstanding by participating students in grades 9-12 in Illinois.

Nominated books must have been published in the last 5 years and be in paperback form. In addition, authors of nominated titles must still be living.

Students who have read at least 4 of the books will be eligible to vote for their favorite in February. Your vote, along with other students across the state, will determine the winner of the 2012 Abe Lincoln Readers’ Choice Award.
