What are Cybils? The acronym stands for children’s and young adult bloggers literary awards. Bloggers who specialize in children’s and young adult books have developed the Cybils awards to highlight some of the best books published in the previous year.
Volunteer judges are needed for several different genre of children’s books. There are two rounds of judging, so be sure to read the judging details to decide which panels you would like to apply for. There has been a change in the nonfiction category, with picture books having been combined with middle-grade and young adult having its own category.
Being a Cybils judge is a wonderful opportunity to meet others interested in children’s books and to read some of the top books in the industry. Hope to see you there.
