Every year, Meridian Park students have the opportunity to participate in several reading award programs sponsored by the Washington Library Asscociation.
Kindergarten through third grade students participate in the Washington Children's Choice Picture Book Award program. Librarians around the state nominate 20 picture book titles every year. In both the library and the classroom, students participate in read-alouds of the books. In March, students vote for their favorites, helping to choose the MP winner and the Washington state winner.
