Sequoyah List

2024 Masterlists

The Sequoyah Book Lists are for students grades 3 through 12. These encourage students in Oklahoma to read books of literary quality. The books on the lists are selected based on criteria such as originality, quality, interest, and appeal. The books must also have a publishing date three years before the award date and the author must live in the United States.

The Sequoyah Lists are released each spring to schools and libraries.
