Young Reader's Choice Award 2022 Nominees. Read and Vote for your favorites!

Participate in the Young Reader's Choice Award (YRCA)! The award was established in 1940 by Harry Hartman, a Seattle bookseller, who believed every student should have an opportunity to select a book that gives him or her pleasure. The YRCA is sponsored by the Pacific Northwest Library Association and continues to be the longest-running children’s choice book award. It is also the only international award with young readers in both the United States and Canada participating in the program.
