About the Star of the North Award

The Star of the North Picture Book Award was established in 2013 under the auspices of the Minnesota Youth Reading Awards. The purpose of the award is to promote vis mere quality, engaging picture books and reading for pleasure among school-aged children. The final list of ten nominees is selected by the Star of the North Selection Committee.

Throughout the year, teachers, media specialists, and public librarians are encouraged to present the nominees in appealing and meaningful ways, to read the books aloud, and to develop activities that will connect the literature to the curriculum. In March, students across the state vote on which books they think should win for the individual categories. The book receiving the most votes from children in grades K-2 is the winner.

How the award works:

Each year ten picture book nominees will be announced.

Students or library participants who read or have read to them at least eight of the ten nominees will be eligible to vote.

Votes will be collected from MYRA members during the month of March. The award winner will be announced each year in April. New nominees will be announced at the same time.

This award is focused on picture books intended for a kindergarten through 2nd grade audience. However, pre-k and older children are also welcome to participate.
