Is your library conducting a Mock Newbery discussion and election? Has your online book group been pondering which great picture book deserves to win the upcoming Caldecott Award? Are your middle schoolers reading, reading, reading in preparation for a Mock Printz discussion? Or maybe your bookstore is planning a Mock Sibert discussion and has pulled together a great selection of children’s nonfiction from this year for your customers to read and think about. When you complete your program, don’t forget to submit your winning title(s) to the Mock Youth Media Awards (YMA) results page on the ALSC Blog.
The process to submit your winning titles is quite simple. To add your mock election results, please use this form. Attach a copy of the ALSC Photo Release Waiver if you would like us to include images of participants.
As submissions are received, we will be posting them on the Mock YMA Election results page in each of the following categories:
- Mock Caldecott
- Mock Newbery
- Mock Coretta Scott King
- Mock Geisel
- Mock Printz
- Mock Sibert
- Mock Pura Belprè Results
- Mock (Mildred L.) Batchelder Results
We look forward to seeing all the Mock winners and eagerly anticipate the “real” Youth Media Awards which will take place virtually on Monday, Jan. 24, 2022, at 8 a.m. CT during LibLearnX: The Library Learning Experience.
