Registration & Educational Resources
Welcome to the Chocolate Lily Book Awards Program. This is our eighteenth year offering this literacy program to BC schools and families. We hope you enjoy this year’s list of nominated titles. Students read the nominated titles and vote for their favourite book.
The B.C. Chocolate Lily Book Awards encourages grade school students to read some of the best fiction published 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 and to promote literacy. 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 Gail Winskill, formerly at Fitzhenry & Whiteside and now publisher at Pajama Press. The Chocolate Lily Book Awards celebrates this homegrown talent.
There are three categories:
Picture Book, as voted by students in Kindergarten through Grade 4
Chapter book/Early novel for Grades 2 through 4
Novels for Grades 4 - 7
The registration fee of $20 helps cover the cost of producing a kit that includes:
a colour poster of the nominated books (additional posters are available for purchase at $3/poster)
author and illustrator information sheets, voting information and promotion ideas (available online with a security code when registration is received)
5 bookmarks (additional bookmarks are available for purchase. 10/$1)
Chocolate Lily Book Award Sticker -one for each category you participate in (additional stickers are available for purchase. 5/$1)
