The Eliot Rosewater Indiana High School Book Award (Rosie Award) is chosen annually by students across Indiana in grades nine through twelve. Students at participating high schools, public libraries, or homeschoolers who read any of approximately 20 nominated books are eligible to rate each book they've read. The votes are due the last Friday of April each year, tabulated, and the winner is announced the following Wednesday.

The purpose of the Rosie Award is to encourage independent reading among high school students. It also promotes cooperation between school administrators, media specialists, teachers and public librarians in broadening reading programs. Rosie promotes reading across the curriculum.
