I'm happy to report that the 2014 Children's and Young Adult Bloggers' Literary Awards (the Cybils Awards) are kicking off soon. As noted on the Cybils blog last week:
"Exciting things are happening in the Cybils world, and we're gearing up for our 2014 season! The call for judges opens August 18, so if you're interested in judging this year, please be sure to check back and apply between August 18 and September 5. We also have a shiny new website coming soon!
Nominations will be open from October 1-15, as usual, so start making your lists!"
The new website is gorgeous! We can't wait to share it with you. This year I will once again be acting as Literacy Evangelist for the Cybils. I'm also acting as Social Media Guru, which means that I'll be spreading the Cybils word on Twitter and Facebook. Our new website features a rotating quotes widget, so if you have any pithy words on why the Cybils Awards are the best thing since, well, the book, please do share them (here or on our Facebook or Twitter pages).
We have several new members of the Cybils organizational team this year (with thanks and regrets to those who opted to step down), and will be introducing them on the new website soon. Stay tuned...
