The Sunshine State Young Reader's Award (SSYRA) Program is a state wide reading motivation program for students in grades 3-5. The program, cosponsored by the School Library Media Services Office of the Department of Education and the Florida Association for Media in Education (FAME), began in 1983. The purpose of the SSYRA is to encourage student to read independently for personal satisfaction, based on interest rather than reading level. Sunshine State books are selected for their wide appeal, literary value, varied genres, curriculum connections, and/or multicultural representation. Students are encouraged to read these books in order to develop their reading fluency.
