The Texas Bluebonnet Award is an annual award that is chosen by students in 3rd-6th grade across the state of Texas. Every Cactus Ranch 3rd-5th grader that has read at least 5 of this year's nominees by January 24th will get to vote for their favorite. Your votes will help determine which book will win! Cactus Ranch 3rd-5th graders can also participate in the CRE Battle of the Bluebonnets. Just read 10 or more of this year's nominees by the end of February, and you will be invited to the Battle. This game show style competition will let you show what you know about the books on this year's list. The 5 students with the highest scores in our campus competition will be invited to move on to the district-wide Battle of the Bluebonnets, where they will face teams from other RRISD elementary schools and compete for the Battle of the Bluebonnets trophy.
