Youth Media Award Winners

This morning, the Youth Media Awards were announced - the best of the past year's media created for children and young adults. Here's the full list of books, media, authors, and illustrators who were honored this year, and the list again with only the young adult winners.

The Printz and Nonfiction awards are a couple of the biggies, and we have copies of the starred books in the library.

Michael L. Printz Award for excellence in literature for young adults
YALSA Award for Excellence in Young Adult Nonfiction
Rather read books voted on by actual young adults? The YALSA Teens' Top Ten list is voted on by teens all over the country every fall, and though Massachusetts doesn't have a local teen choice award, Rhode Island teens have nominated some great books for this year's Rhode Island Teen Book Award.
