Sunshine State Young Reader's Award Program

The Sunshine State Young Reader's Award Program (SSYRA) is a statewide reading program for students in grades 3–5. The SSYRA Junior Program is a set of 15 books for students in grades K–2.

The program, co-sponsored by the School Library Media Services Office of the Department of Education and the Florida Association for Media in Education (FAME), began in 1983. The purpose of the SSYRA Program is to encourage students to read independently for personal satisfaction based on interest rather than just reading level.

Sunshine State books are selected for their wide appeal, literary value, varied genres, curriculum connections, and/or multicultural representation. Students are encouraged to read books that are above, on, and below their tested reading level in order to improve their reading fluency and have a greater exposure to literature.

At Rymfire, students can participate in these programs in a variety of ways to be able to vote on their favorite, collect brag tags, compete in a battle of the books competition, reading celebrations and more.
