SC Young Adult Book Award (YABA)

Big picture

What is the SC YABA Program?

Each year, a committee receives recommendations from anyone interested in encouraging students to read. Students, teachers, media specialists, and parents are encouraged to submit titles for consideration to the Book Awards Board Representative. Typically, a list of 75 titles is considered to be included on the final list of 20 books. Students are encouraged to read at least three (3) books from the list to be eligible to vote with other students throughout the state to select their favorite book from the list. Voting usually occurs in February.
