California Young Reader Medal (CYRM)

2017-18 NOMINEEĀ 

Your Vote Counts!

The California Young Reader Medal (CYRM) program encourages recreational reading of popular literature among the young people of our state. Since its inception in 1974, millions of California children have nominated, read, and voted for the winners of the California Young Reader Medal.
 

Young people suggest the names of favorite books for nomination, or teachers and librarians note repeatedly read or requested titles, and these are submitted to the California Young Reader Medal Committee. Members of the committee read the suggested books, discuss their merits and appeal to children, and then decide upon a well-balanced list of nominees.

  • Students will be able to read the nominated titles from April until 4th week of March of the following year.
  • Students can vote using the provided ballots in March on their favorite title in each category for which they read the books.
  • The librarian will compile vote totals, and submit results to the CYRM committee. (All CYRM ballots must be postmarked by April 1 of each year so no late ballots can be accepted.)

For more information, go to the California Young Reader Medal website.
