Last Call for Your 2023 Mock YMA Submissions!

Have you checked out the 2023 Mock YMA Elections Results page recently? More and more submissions are being received in anticipation of next week’s Youth Media Awards. If you have a book discussion group which has deliberated in a Mock YMA program, submit your winning titles using this form for inclusion in the list.

Having served on the Newbery committee myself, I know that no discussion group probably approaches the intensity that the Award committees have experienced this past year as they prepared through intense reading, discussion, re-reading, and extremely thoughtful examinations of the books, but it is always great fun to see what people around the country are reading and selecting in their own discussions.

What do YOU think will win these “Best of the Best in Children’s Books” Awards?

Check out the 2023 Mock YMA Election Results page to learn what has been selected at mock election programs around the country. On this page you’ll find:

  • Mock Caldecott Results
