What Is It?

The Flume: NH Teen Reader’s Choice Award was created in 2005 in response to a New Hampshire teen’s request to have a book award geared towards high school students. This award is a state-wide venture led by a collaborative effort from school and public librarians. Each year teens nominate titles, published within the last two years, they think deserve to be recognized. Librarians narrow the group of titles to a shorter list. Teens then vote for the winning title from that list.

What’s The Nomination Criteria?

Titles must be nominated by teens in grades 9-12, can be fiction or nonfiction books, with appeal to this age group. They must have a publication date within the last two years. If the book is part of a series, it must be able to stand alone, meaning a reader doesn’t have to read the other books in the series to understand what’s going on.


What is the Flume Award?

New Hampshire teens nominate their choices for the best books published in the last two years. School and public librarians narrow the list of nominees to thirteen titles. The winner is announced each spring.


You are welcome to submit names of potential nominees each fall in the library or online. In April a ballot box will be available in the library and Media Center to select this year's winner. You may also vote online at the URL above.
