Call for Judges! Now accepting applications!

 It's that time of year again! We're now officially recruiting judges for both rounds of the 2013 Cybils contest.

To apply for either round,  follow these two easy steps:

Please read the judging information right here, or click on the "Judging" link on the top nav bar.

Fill out our handy application form, which is right here. 

The deadline to apply is August 31st but don't wait — many organizers begin filling slots immediately.

Please note these changes for this year: Nonfiction categories are
split differently with the Elementary/Middle- Grade Nonfiction category
replacing the Nonfiction
Picture Books category and including picture books. Also, Fantasy and
Science Fiction has been  changed to Speculative Fiction.

For Book Apps, it is important that panelists have consistent access to an iPad. Also, since we are accepting ebooks in some categories, judges will be
expected to read ebooks if any are submitted in the following: Poetry, Young Adult
Nonfiction, Young Adult Fiction, and Young Adult Speculative Fiction.

For the 2013 Cybils, here are the categories for which you can apply:
Book Apps
Easy Readers/Early Chapter Books
Fiction Picture Books

    I was filling out the form but it wouldn’t let me submit with out answering this question: If you’ve participated in the Cybils previously, please indicate which years: *
    I have never been a part of your panel but I have to pick a year there was no option for never. So I just picked 2006. Hope this doesn’t kick me out of the running
