The Cybils Awards aims to recognize the children’s and young adult authors and illustrators whose books combine both the highest literary merit and popular appeal. The Cybils Awards is committed to mindful inclusivity in its book selection process.
The Cybils Awards is a public charity[501(c)(3)] dedicated to encouraging reading by young people and their families. Each year since 2006 it has recognized youth literature that combines both high literary quality and popular appeal.
The Cybils Awards' commitment to mindful inclusivity in its book selection process is reflected in these actions: the Cybils Awards Board has
- Published its Inclusivity Goals and Guidelines document to demonstrate its transparency; and
- Requires diversity and cultural sensitivity training for all panelists to ensure critical engagement with books nominated for its awards.
