Cybils Awards Mission
The Cybils Awards aims to recognize the children’s and young adult authors and illustrators whose books combine the highest literary merit and popular appeal. If some la-di-dah awards can be compared to brussels sprouts, and other, more populist ones to gummy bears, we’re thinking more like organic chicken nuggets. We’re yummy and nutritious.
Round 2 judges read and discuss the 5-7 finalist that the Round 1 judges select from the hundreds of nominated titles. Sounds like fun, right? Want to join in on the fun? You can, by nominating your favorite books. Nominations begin October 1. Be sure to check out the Cybils website for all the details about nominating books. In the meantime, I should get busy meeting my fellow Round 2 judges! We are going to have lots to talk about when we start our reading in January!
