The Sunshine State Young Readers Award (SSYRA) is a statewide reading motivational program for students in grades 3 through 5. The purpose of the SSYRA Program is to encourage students to read independently for pleasure and to read books that are on, above, and below their reading level in order to improve their reading fluency. Readers of 3 (or more) will be able to vote for their favorite in the spring.
The mission of the SSYRA Jr. program is to develop student interest in reading for pleasure by exposing them to a wide range of literature. Students are encouraged to listen to these books read to them, read them in a small group setting, or read independently to develop skills in fluency and comprehension. Students will be eligible to vote in the spring after listening/reading at least three of the books.
