Iowa High School Book Award

In March, high school students across Iowa take part in the nomination of books for the Iowa High School Book Award.  These books are reviewed by the IHSBA committee and teacher librarian volunteer readers and the list is narrowed.  During the summer, the readers read and rate the titles.  The committee members finalize the list in the fall.  The list for the next school year is released in January for the following school year.
