Soaring Eagle Book Awards

Sponsored by the Wyoming Library Association and the Wyoming State Literacy Association, the Soaring Eagle Book Award will provide the opportunity for Wyoming youth in grades 7-12 to select a favorite book and honor its author. Its purpose is to help Wyoming students in grades 7-12:

  • Become acquainted with the best contemporary authors 
  • Become aware of the qualities that make a good book 
  • Choose the best rather than the mediocre 
  • Set a goal to read at least three good books 
  • To honor an author whose books Wyoming students have enjoyed
