The ALA Youth Media Awards will take place virtually on Monday, Jan. 24, 2022, at 8 a.m. CT during LibLearnX: The Library Learning Experience. That’s less than 2 weeks from now! Are you offering a Mock Election to prepare for this event?
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.
We are approaching one of my favorite times of the year. No, it’s not the first snowfall or the upcoming winter holiday season. It is the time of year to participate in mock discussions and elections of children’s books, and to submit YOUR Mock YMA Election Results.
