1. Michael L. Printz Award (Best YA literature of the year)
*13. Caldecott Medal (Best Illustrated Picture Book)
*14. Sibert Informational Book Award (Best Information Book for Children)
If any of the awards for these categories go to Junior or Children's books those books will not be included for this Challenge. Last year, for example, only nine of the categories had YA books, so we only read nine books, not fifteen. Honor books will be listed if the award book is geared toward a younger audience but the honor book is for teens.
If you REALLY want to challenge yourself, you can read some or all the honor books in each category, too. OR you could move down and include books for the Junior and Children's Award categories like the Newbery, Caldecott, Siebert, etc. But I draw the line at YA books. That is enough for me. The full list of all winners and honor books will be listed on the Youth Media Awards 2017 Page after January 23, 2017.
