Kamilo`iki students in grades 4 and 5 participate in the NENE program. This Hawai`i state reading program is for students in grades 4-6 to promote reading and discussion of literature. Our library has all of the titles on the Nene Award Recommended Reading List. Students are encouraged to read as many of the books as possible from the list and then vote for which title should win the NENE Award. Voting takes place between January and March. Votes are tallied and the winner is announced at the annual NENE Award ceremony in May.
The annual Nene Award is supported by the Hawaii Association of School Librarians, the Hawaii State Department of Education, and the Hawaii State Public Library System. For more information, visit the NENE Award website.
