15th Annual Chocolate Lily Book Awards

Welcome to the Chocolate Lily Book Awards Program.  This is our 15th year offering this literacy program to BC schools and families.  We hope you enjoy this year’s list of nominated titles. Students from BC schools read the nominated titles and vote for their favourite book.

The Program

The B.C. Chocolate Lily Young Readers’ Choice Awards encourages grade school students to read some of the best fiction by British Columbia’s children’s authors and illustrators.

It all began with a desire to introduce B.C. children to the books created by authors and illustrators living in their own communities.  Many wonderful books have been published by award winning children’s authors and illustrators who make B.C. their home.

“B.C. is a treasure trove of talent,” said Fitzhenry & Whiteside’s Children’s Publisher, Gail Winskill.  The Chocolate Lily Book Awards celebrates this home grown talent.

Another equally important goal is literacy.  Because reading and writing are intertwined, good readers are generally good writers.  “Read, read, read!”  Delta author, Gayle Friesen, suggested in her writing tip.  Many B.C. authors give the same writing advice.

There are three categories:

Best Picture Book, as voted by students in kindergarten through grade 4

Best Chapter book/Early novel for Grades 2 through 4

Novels for Grades 4 through 7

Your registration will include an Educational Kit, voting information (votes to be submitted by May 15, 2017) and information about the gala to be held June 9, 2017.

Chocolate Lily Logo

Chocolate Lily Logo

The Chocolate Lily is a real indigenous flower that grows in woodland areas along the west coast of B.C. and nowhere else in Canada.

The Logo was designed by Vanessa Vaartnou.  The logo colours were added by Graphic Arts Designer, William Glasgow.
