West Australian Young Readers' Book Award

Reading Lists, Past Winners, Newsletters, Merchandise

About

The Award operates on three levels, Younger Readers, Picture Books and Older Readers.

Readers are invited to nominate, through their libraries, books that they
have enjoyed. These nominations are then considered by the WAYRBA committee and the three lists are drawn up.

Eligibility

Books of fiction published within the last five years and currently in print.

May be written by a living Australian or overseas author.

Only one title of any author may be included on a list in any year.

Evaluation

Young people are asked to read titles on the lists and evaluate  them as  ‘terrific’, ‘good’, ‘okay’ or ‘awful.’

The books on the reading lists have been nominated by the young readers of Western Australia and it is important that you carefully consider your selection policy before purchasing.

Individual authorities are expected to make their own decisions regarding any controversial aspects of books purchased for their readers.

You do not have to purchase all the books to participate in the voting.
