22nd Annual Troybery Award Ceremony
The Troybery Award Program began in the year 2000 by the Troy middle school media specialists and was patterned after the American Library Association’s annual award, the Newbery Award. Our Troybery Award Program allows our Troy middle school students the opportunity to voice their opinion on the best book published for kids during the previous calendar year. For our 22nd Annual Troybery program, we challenged our Troy middle school students to read as many books as they could from our list of 32 titles that were all published in 2020. Included in this list were award-winning titles, as well as titles that were popular in our media centers during the 2020- 21 school year. In March, students voted for the best books in each genre category, which narrowed the list down to our top 10. In this video, we will have students from each middle school announcing the Troybery books with the most votes, starting from third runner up and ending with our overall Troybery Award winner.
