The Young Hoosier Book Award is an award designed to get children reading. By allowing students to vote for their favorite books, media professionals hoped that more students could be motivated to read more newly published books. Each year, the Committee's members select 20 nominees for each list, Picture Book, Intermediate and Middle Grades, from titles suggested by teachers, students, parents, public librarians, and media specialists. From these lists, winners are selected.
