The Kids’ Book Choice Awards (previously the Children’s & Teen Choice Book Awards) are the only national book awards voted on solely by kids and teens. Launched in 2008 by the Children’s Book Council and Every Child a Reader, the awards provide young readers with an opportunity to voice their opinions about the books being written for them.
The 2021 program relaunch includes a new name, logo, and categories with finalists selected through nationwide long list voting.
Thanks to the amazing team at SJI Associates, a new kid-centric name, logo, and slogan were revealed in August 2021. The Kids’ Book Choice Awards tagline, No Adults Allowed!, let’s young readers know that these awards are 100% for them to voice their choice.
From August 3 to September 8 kids can vote to determine the finalists in 11 all new categories:
Finalists will be announced in late September; voting for the winners will run throughout October until the end of Fall Children’s Book Week, November 14.
Our four long-standing Best Book of the Year categories will remain. Finalists will be announced along with the new category finalists and can be voted on from late September to November 14.
Our deepest gratitude to SJI Associates for their expert advice and work on the visual rebranding of these awards.
