YRCA 2018

YRCA 2018. Who wins? You decide!

The Young Reader’s Choice Award is the oldest children’s choice award in North America.  Started in 1940 by Harry Hartman, a Seattle publisher, it includes Alaska, Washington, Montana, Idaho, British Columbia, and Alberta. Students, teachers, and librarians nominate titles, but only kids get to determine the winner. There are three divisions: Junior (grades 4-6), Intermediate (grades 7-9), and Senior (grades 10-12), but you can read and vote in every division, no matter your grade.

Voting is now over. A big thanks to everyone who voted!  The winning books will be announced soon.
