Mark Twain Wall of Fame Challenge
The Mark Twain Award Program is a reading program open to all 4th through 6th graders in the state of Missouri.  Each year a list of 12 nominated books is compiled by a selected group of librarians, teachers, and students representing library and educational organizations in Missouri.  Books on the Mark Twain Award list are chosen to meet the following criteria: published two years prior to nomination on the Mark Twain Master List; of interest to students in grades four through six; written by an author living in the United States and of literary value which will enrich students' lives.  Books on the Mark Twain list are selected to provide quality reading for a variety of tastes and interests. The winning title is chosen in the spring by fourth through sixth grade Missouri students who have read at least 4 of the 12 nominees.
