The Cybils Awards •

The Cybils are a series of book awards given by children’s and young adult book bloggers. The Cybils have only two criteria: literary merit and kid appeal. We don’t think those two values have to collide. There are books we want kids to read and books kids can’t resist. Somewhere in the middle, they meet.

Now in the ninth year, we’re comprised of 100+ bloggers who write about children’s and teen’s books every day. We open our nominations to the public. One group of panelists in each genre narrows the selections down to a “short list” of finalists. Those books go to a second round of judges to select the final Cybils winner in each category.

Nominations for the 2014 awards will close on October 15, 2014. The finalists will be announced January 1, 2015. The 2012 finalist lists can be reviewed via the links in the sidebar to the left of this page. The winner in each category will be announced on February 14, 2015.
