The book Sylo has been removed from the state level Helen Ruffin competition for elementary only. We are still awaiting notification from the state. We have reached out with no response as of our meeting on August 31, 2015. The only notification we have received is the removal of the title from the official book list on the state site. We apologize for the delay in this notification.

Helen Ruffin was the media specialist at Skyhaven Elementary School in DeKalb County until her retirement in 1992. To encourage her students to read, she created a competition game based on the Georgia Children’s Book Award nominees. The idea took hold in DeKalb County and grew to a statewide competition in 2003.
