The Charlie May Simon Children's Book Award for children's literature has been presented annually since 1971 to an author whose book has been selected through a vote taken by Arkansas school children in grades four, five and six. 

Students in 4th or 5th grade who have read at least 3 of the books on the reading list are eligible to vote for the book they think deserves to win the Charlie May Simon award for the year. Voting will happen in the spring.
