For Children

Young Writers Awards

The Young Writers Awards (YWA) honor excellent writing by young members of the Library community. A panel of notable authors judge each year's entries. The competition is open to children and grandchildren of Library members, as well as member schools and the more than 100 schools that participate in the Project Cicero Annual Book Drive.

The results of the 19th Annual Young Writers Awards have been announced! We invite you to read the 2021 Young Writers Awards winning and honorable mention entries.

The 2021 Young Writers Awards ceremony was held virtually on Tuesday, May 25.
