What Is ORCA?

The Oregon Reader's Choice Award was founded in 2010.  The award is intended to be a fun and exciting way for Oregon youth in grades 4-12 to become enthusiastic and discriminating readers.  During the course of the school year, Oregon students choose their favorite book in a real-life democratic process.

Who may vote?
Oregon students in grades 4-12.  

When does voting take place?
Voting for Laurel Ridge students is open through March 30th.

How do Laurel Ridge students vote?
After reading 2 or more books, students vote for the book they think should win the ORCA. Voting can be done online. The ballot link is on the LRMS Media Center website or in paper form available in the media center.  The more books you read the more prizes you receive.

Could I have read the book last year?

The ORCA nominated books listed on the back should have been read between June 1, 2017 and March 30, 2018.

Why no reading log?

Your voting ballot, whether online or in hard-copy, acts as proof of reading.

What's in it for me?
Other than the joy of reading some great books and bettering your reading skills; with every book you read you win prizes.
