Sunshine State Young Reader's Award Program
The Sunshine State Young Reader's Award Program (SSYRA) is a statewide reading program for students in grades 3–5. The SSYRA Junior Program is a set of 15 books for students in grades K–2.
The purpose of the SSYRA Program is to encourage students to read independently for personal satisfaction based on interest rather than just reading level. Students are encouraged to read books that are above, on, and below their tested reading level in order to improve their reading fluency and have a greater exposure to literature.
