Teen Read Voting (YARP)

Young Adult Reading Program (YARP)  Young Adult Reading Program


Each year the SD YARP Committee publishes a list to promote quality literature and to help South Dakota teachers and librarians in selecting and promoting books for adolescents. The books are selected from among the many young adult and adult books that have received positive reviews by national reviewing periodicals.

About the Contest


Sponsored by the South Dakota Library Association, the contest features two lists of nominated titles for middle school and high school students.

How to Vote

To qualify to vote, students read a book from the YARP Reading List then vote and then give the book a star rating of one to five with five being the best. The book receiving the most stars on each list receives the SD YARP award.
