CYALR is honored to host this list with permission.
The links to sites about children's literature awards by states were originally compiled by Melissa Depper of Colorado's Blue Spruce Young Adult Book Award Committee in January 2000 for PUBYAC, a discussion list for Children's and Young Adult Librarians in Public Libraries. It was not intended to be comprehensive. Melissa updated the list in May 2005.
