The purpose of the Young Hoosier Book Award Program is to stimulate recreational reading among elementary and middle school/junior high school children. To encourage cooperation between administrators, school media specialists, teachers, public libraries, and the community in providing student participation in pleasure reading was the thrust behind the creation of Young Hoosier Book Award (YHBA) Program in 1974-75. By allowing students to vote for their favorite books, media professionals hoped that more students could be motivated to read more newly published books.
