It’s hard to believe, but it’s that time of year again: the Wyoming Library Association and the Wyoming State Literacy Association invite you to submit nominations for the 2019-2020 Wyoming Book Awards.

Each year, these two organizations jointly sponsor the awards to provide an opportunity for the youth of Wyoming to read and select favorite books and to honor the authors of those books. Submit your nominations at these links for the three awards:

Voting will open sometime around February 1 and continue through March 15 when both voting and nominations close. The sooner the nominations come in the better — it allows the committees more time to read each title and helps them to generate the lists more quickly after voting closes.
