During the 2016 -2017 school year, students in Lincoln Street School will participate in the Great Stone Face Book Award. Sponsored and established by the Children's Librarians of New Hampshire (CHILIS) in 1980, the award is given annually to an author whose book receives the most votes from students in grades four through six throughout the state. Each year, the Great Stone Face Committee compiles a list of 20 recently published titles for the children to select, read, and choose as best of the year. Voting takes place throughout the state in schools and public libraries in April during National Library Week. The winner is announced in May at the annual conference of the New Hampshire School Library Media Association. (NHSLMA)
