YHBA - Nominations
Share |

The Young Hoosier Book Award Committee is composed of members of the Association of Indiana School Library Educators (AISLE), an association of the Indiana Library Federation. Each year, committee members select 20 nominees for each category (Picture Book, Intermediate, Middle Grades) from titles suggested by teachers, students, parents, public librarians, and media specialists. Books must meet the following guidelines to be eligible for consideration:

  1.  The author of a nominated book will be restricted to one work in any particular year within each category.  In the Picture Book  category, the illustrator of a nominated book will also be restricted to one work in any particular year.

  2.  The book must have been published within the last five (5) years.

  3.  The book must be in print at the time of selection.

  4.  The book cannot be a previous nominee.

  5. The book cannot be a Caldecott or Newbery Medal winner.  Honor books from either of these award categories are acceptable. 

To suggest a book for nomination for a YHBA Award, please e-mail the information on the Nomination Form to Debbie Acord, General Co-Chair or fill out the Nomination Form below.
