Youth Literature Award Winners: Home

Need to find award-winning books? This guide will help you find winners and honor books for many prominent youth literature awards in the UNI Youth Collection.

Youth Literature Award Winners

Award-Winning Books in the Youth Collection


  • From 1996 to the present, there is a page for each year. You can see all the books that were winners or honor books for the various major youth literature awards that we track.
  • For the longest-running of these awards (the Newbery Medal, the Caldecott Medal, and the Coretta Scott King Book Awards), there is a page for the award. This page includes all the winners and honor books from every year the award has been given.

We do not have all of these books at UNI. If you see that a book is Not in our collection, you may be able to obtain it through Interlibrary Loan.

Here are the awards that are currently included in this LibGuide. The links go to the award's website, where you can learn more about their criteria, the committees that award them, etc.

Significant work on the research for and creation of this LibGuide was done by Erin Borchardt, Youth Collection Graduate Student Assistant, in the fall of 2016.
