Students in the state of Texas who are in grades three through six may participate in this program. Students must read a minimum of five books from the current list; they are then eligible to vote for their favorite title in January. The author of the book that receives the most votes statewide is declared the winner of the Texas Bluebonnet Award and is honored at the Texas Library Association annual conference.
