Flume Award

Flume Logo by Nicole Copple FlumeHeader

What Is It?

The Flume: NH Teen Reader’s Choice Award was created in 2005 in response to a New Hampshire teen’s request to have a book award geared towards high school students. This award is a state-wide venture led by a collaborative effort from school and public librarians. Each year teens nominate titles, published within the last three years, they think deserve to be recognized. Librarians narrow the group of titles to a shorter list. Teens then vote for the winning title from that list.

What Are The Nomination Criteria?

Titles must be nominated by teens in grades 9-12, can be fiction or nonfiction books, with appeal to this age group. They must have a publication date within the last three years. If the book is part of a series, it must be able to stand alone, meaning a reader doesn’t have to read the other books in the series to understand what’s going on.

Artist Bio:
“My name is Nicole Marie Copple and I’m 16 years old. I’m a sophomore at Keene High School. I’ve always been interested in art as long as I can remember. In elementary school I always remember it being the most fun class for me. In middle school I still loved art and was pretty good at it. I remember always feeling anxious to get into the high school level classes because I remember walking down the halls when I was younger and looking at all the art hanging up in awe. I kept telling myself I was going to be that good someday. Now that I’m here at the high school, I’m learning a lot and I can’t wait to go to college to learn more about art.”
