Juvenile & YA Award Books

Voting season for Monarch, Bluestem, Caudill, and Lincoln Award books is swiftly approaching! February will be here before we know it!

  • The Monarch Award is for children grades K through 3. Five or more Monarch nominees must be read for children to be eligible to vote.
  • The Bluestem Award is for children grades 3 through 5. Four or more Bluestem nominees must be read for children to be eligible to vote.
  • The Caudill Award is for children grades 4 through 8. Three or more Caudill nominees must be read for children to be eligible to vote.
  • The Lincoln Award is for teens. Four or more Lincoln nominees must be read for teens to be eligible to vote.

The library has a Bluestem Board and a Caudill Board for children eligible to participate in the voting parties to post the books they have read. Make sure your child has been added to the appropriate board when they become eligible and when they’ve read an additional title.

Teens and homeschool families may vote for Lincoln and Monarch Awards by contacting the library.
