Bluestem Voting 2018
All West School Students participated in an election of their own on election day. Students sat at their own polling booth and voted on their favorite Bluestem book of 2018-19. The Bluestem award is designed for students in grades 3-5 who are ready for longer titles than found on the Monarch list, but not quite ready for the sophistication of some of the Rebecca Caudill titles. Named in honor of Big Bluestem which is the state prairie grass, the award may include both timeless classics and current titles, as well as books that have appeared on Monarch and Rebecca Caudill lists.
