Voice Your Choice! Teens’ Top Ten Voting Now Open

The big day is here! Your teens have been reading the 2010 Teens’ Top Ten nominations since last April, and now they can tell us which books are their favorites. Voting for the 2010 Teens’ Top Ten is available’  — and this year, we’ve made it even easier for your teens to vote by embedding the TTT survey right on the Teens’ Top Ten homepage at www.ala.org/teenstopten! (If you still want to use a separate link, that’s available too at www.surveymonkey.com/s/teenstopten2010.)

Voting is open now through September 17. We’ll announce the winners at www.ala.org/teenstopten during Teen Read Week, Oct. 17-23.

The Teens’ Top Ten is a reading list chosen entirely by and for teens. The twenty-six official nominations were chosen by fifteen teen book groups from across the U.S. that participate in YALSA’s YA Galley project, in which publishers provide book groups with galleys and the teens provide feedback. Last year, more than 11,000 teens voted for the Teens’ Top Ten, choosing Paper Towns by John Green as their favorite title.

  1. In preparation for next year’s list, how can teens get involved in putting the nominations together? I’d like to encourage friends and readers to be more actively involved in their libraries and community.

  2. Hi Debra — Nominations are chosen by select teen book groups from across the country. Participation is limited to 16 teen book groups chosen by YALSA every two years. The 2010-2012 book groups have been chosen at this point (we’ll be announcing them soon). We’ll be taking applications for the 2012 groups in spring 2012.

    If you’re looking for ways to get involved in the meantime, look at YALSA’s Get Involved website at http://www.ala.org/yalsa/getinvolved.
