TEENS, make your voice heard!
The Young Reader’s Choice Award is sponsored by the Pacific Northwest Library Association (PNLA) for young readers in Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Alberta, and British Columbia. It was first established in 1940, making it the longest-running—and only US-Canada international—children’s choice book award. Learn more at pnla.org.
Voting for the Young Reader’s Choice Award begins on March 15, 2024, so the time to start reading the nominees is NOW! If you’re in grades 7-9, then you can vote on books in the Intermediate Division. If you’re in grades 10-12, then you can vote on books in the Senior Division. ImagineIF Libraries will begin distributing voting ballots closer to March, so stay tuned!
