We are also proud to share that The Nutmeg Book Award is growing!

We currently have the Intermediate Award for students in grades 4-6,
the Teen Award for students in grades 7-8, and the new 2014 High School Award for students in grades 9-12. Starting in 2015, there will be an Elementary level for students in grades 2-4.
