Updated with Winners!!!

YRCA went through some exciting changes in 2014. In 2015 we will continue to further engage and give back to the participants who make this award a success. Due to the strong number of nominations of stand-alone titles, there were not as many mid-series titles short-listed for the final nominee list this year. We heard a lot of great feedback over the year and we appreciate your passion for YRCA. We want to remain flexible to the changing trends and reading interests of kids and teens in the PNLA region. Thank you for your continue support and we hope you will enjoy the 2015 YRCA Nominees!
