Many libraries, schools, bookstores, and online groups enjoy preparing for these announcements by offering Mock Election programs. The ALSC Blog is working to compile results from these Mock Award programs from around the country. 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. It’s fun to check back often to see the newest results.

As submissions are received, they will be posted on the Mock YMA Election results page in each of the following categories:

• Mock Caldecott
