Young Readers Choice Awards
The YRCA is coordinated by the Pacific Northwest Library Association. Students from Alaska, British Columbia, Alberta, Washington, Montana, and Idaho will determine which author will win this literary award by reading the books and voting for their favourite.
Students in grades 4-12 from Alaska, British Columbia, Alberta, Washington, Montana, and Idaho are all eligible to vote. Kids need to read at least two titles in a division to vote in that division.
The Edmonton Public Library makes sure we have lots of copies of the YRCA titles. They should be in a special display at your nearest branch. Sometimes some of them are hard to find because they’re so popular, so visit our catalogue to place a hold if you can’t find the one you’re looking for! Most school libraries should also have copies of the YRCA books. If you are a teacher, you can find more information and resources on the YRCA teacher's page.
