2022 Cybils: Category Changes

Cybils Awards

Things are always in flux around here, as we try and tweak the award to find the biggest number of best books possible. There are only two real changes this year:Β 

  1. We are adding Novels in Verse as an award. It will be judged by the Poetry panel, but they have long felt that novels in verse need their own recognition apart from poetry collections, and we decided that they deserve to be heard.Β 
  2. If you didn’t notice when the judges announcement went out: we only have one non-fiction panel/judges this year. There will still be three awards: Elementary, Middle Grade, and High School.

As always, be sure to check out our category descriptions for what books we’re looking for in each category!
