Sunshine State Young Readers Award Program

  • The SSYRA program is sponsored by FAME and the Florida Department of Education. See the link on our page under News to see a list of this years' SSYRA books.

    At Polo Park Middle School, we participate in the Sunshine State Young Readers Award (SSYRA) program in a number of ways.

    • We encourage the students to read the books selected by the SSYRA committee for summer reading as well as throughout the year.
    • We celebrate student success through our SSYRA contests, SSYRA voting, and SSYRA ice cream sundae party.
    • We participate in the Battle of the Books, based on the current SSYRA books and sponsored by our school district.
