Abraham Lincoln Award

Illinois' Grade 9-12 Readers' Choice Award

Each year, the Abraham Lincoln Award is given to the author of the book voted most outstanding by participating students in grades 9-12 in Illinois. The award is named for Abraham Lincoln, one of Illinois' most famous residents and an enthusiastic reader and author. Sponsored by the Illinois School Library Media Association (ISLMA), the Abraham Lincoln Award was created for high school students to instill a life-long love of reading.

Students who read at least 4 books from the 2015 Master List may vote in February 2015 for their favorite title. Students may vote in the Library if they have not voted in school.
