Description :

Join us for the announcement of the best of the best in children’s and young adult literature and media –the ALA Youth Media Awards! Each year the American Library Association honors books, videos, and other outstanding materials for children and teens. The awards are selected under a cloak of secrecy by national judging committees composed of librarians and other children’s literature experts and include the prestigious Newbery, Caldecott, Printz, Coretta Scott King Book Awards and other noteworthy awards. Recognized worldwide for the high quality they represent, the ALA Youth Media Awards serve as a guide for parents, educators, librarians, and others in selecting the best materials for youth.
