The Golden Sower Award is Nebraska's "Children's Choice" book award. 

Each year, there are 10 Primary Nominees (grades K-3) and 10 Intermediate Nominees (grades 4-5). Students across the state who read at least 4 of the 10 nominees at their level by April 1 may vote for their favorite. At Morton, voting takes place in April. The winner of this statewide award is announced on May 1.
