Cybils 2007 Nominations Open!

Cybils LogoOk, I realize I’m very late in posting this and everyone else already has it up, but here it finally is. The Cybils are children’s book awards given out by the kidlit community. Anyone who wants to (this means you) is free to nominate one book in each category that they think is worthy of being considered for the award. The only rules are that the book must have been published in 2007 and must not already have been nominated. For more information about the history of the Cybils and what the award is all about, go check out the official website. To nominate books in any and all categories, go to the official blog. You can learn more about the categories and panels on this page and see a list of what books won last year on this page!

This year I’m going to serve on the one of the graphic novel panels for the Cybils! Here’s a list of the awesome people I’m going to be working with:


Category Organizer: Sarah Stevenson (Reading YA: Readers’ Rants)

Nominating Panel:

Mary Lee Hahn (A Year of Reading)
Alyssa Feller (The Shady Glade)
Katie Zenke (Pixie Palace)
Elizabeth Jones
Gina Ruiz (AmoXcalli)

Judging Panel:

David Elzey (The Excelsior File)
J.L. Bell (Oz and Ends)
Anna (TangognaT)

The winners that I’ve read from last year are awesome and all the people involved in this project are great, so I’m thrilled to be involved this year! I encourage everyone to nominate their favorite books from 2007! There were so many great books this year and it would be a shame if we missed your favorite!
