Welcome to the home of the Amazing Book Awards
Here at the ABAs we like to think we're a little bit special, a bit unique as YA book awards go. The ABAs are 100% led by our student participants. Student Voice is the most important part of the ABAs. When it comes to voting for the ABAs there is no panel vote or veto. Only the students can decide who the winners will be.
Every year our schools help us to choose a Long-List of books. 15 to 17 books make up this list. From that Long-List our schools then vote for their favourite 5 titles. Those 5 books then become our Shortlist. After reading all 5 books, the students vote to find their overall Gold, Silver and Bronze winners.
In the summer term (June/July) we hold a huge Awards Night, to which everyone who took part over the year is invited. (As Well as our final 5 authors and a special guest host.)
