ALA Youth Media Awards Press Kit
Each year the American Library Association honors books, videos, and other outstanding materials for children and teens. Recognized worldwide for the high quality they represent, the ALA Youth Media Awards, including the prestigious, Coretta Scott King Book, Caldecott, Newbery, and Printz Awards, guide parents, educators, librarians, and others in selecting the best materials for youth. Selected by committees composed of librarians and other literature and media experts, the awards encourage original and creative work in the field of children’s and young adult literature and media.
The 2017 Youth Media Award announcements took place during the ALA Midwinter Meeting & Exhibits on Monday, Jan. 23, 2017 at 8 a.m. ET from the Georgia World Congress Center.
