In 2012 we founded Adi’s Reading Challenge in honor of our former student, Aditya Srinivasan, as a way to encourage boys to read highly acclaimed, newly published books. We try to predict which books will win ALA Youth Media Awards, such as the Coretta Scott King Award, the Pura Belpré Award, the Sibert Award, and most especially, the Newbery Medal. The challenge takes place every year from early October to late January. A complete list of this year's titles can be found here.
The challenge is open to students in grades four and up. Many of the Adi's Reading Challenge titles are available in Sora and can be read or listened to on your computer or device. See our Adi's Reading Challenge page for more details
