Prestigious Accomplishments for Country School Readers
Jointly sponsored by the Connecticut LIbrary Association and the Connecticut Association of School Librarians, the Intermediate Nutmeg Award encourages students in grades four to six to read quality literature. Each year the Nutmeg Selection Committee invites 6th and 7th graders to apply to be one of only two or three student readers from around the state. These literary students are tasked with reading about 120 books in nine months and helping choose the top ten nominees that are announced each spring.
Country School 6th Graders Olafur Scott of Haddam Neck and Elizabeth Rogers of Madison submitted applications. Pamela Dear and Rebecca Anderson, 2023 Intermediate Selection Committee Co-Chairpersons, noted that Scott’s and Rogers’ remarkable dedication and scholarship set them apart from the other applicants. The Nutmeg Book Award Selection Committee named Scott a member of the 2023 Selection Committee as a student reader. Classmate Rogers was chosen as a finalist in the competition.
