The Young Hoosier Book Award (YHBA) is an annual book award given by the Indiana Library Federation. It is divided into three categories: Picture Books (kindergarten through second grade), Intermediate (third through fifth grade), and Middle Grade (sixth through eighth grade). It encourages self-selected reading among elementary and middle school/junior high school children. Indiana students vote for their favorite among the 20 nominees in each category.

The winners from the Young Hoosier Book Award Nominees (English, Member-written)
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.
