The Latvian jury for child and youth literature

The Latvian jury for child and youth literature aims to award prizes to the best Latvian work of child and youth literature each year. In 2002, when the competition was held for the second time, 5.425 children took part as well as more than 200 libraries. According to the different key stages of reading, a list of 6 or 7 recommended titles is submitted to the children who are then asked to read the books until December. They can then fill in their evaluation sheets and return them to the libraries. The award-winning titles are presented at a reading festival held by the Centre for Child and Youth Literature In February, and libraries throughout the country receive free copies.
