The Washington Children’s Choice Award is selected annually by Washington State’s K-3 students, who may vote for this award through their local teacher-librarian. This award is given through the WLA School Library Division.

The Evergreen Teen Book Award is sponsored by the Washington Young Adult Review Group, a group comprised of school and public librarians from the state of Washington. The award was created to give teens in the state a voice in deciding the best literature aimed at their age group.

The OTTER (Our Time to Enjoy Reading) Award is for transitional readers in grades 1-3, open nominations, committee selected, student voted.

The Sasquatch Award is for novels for grades 4-6, with open nominations, are committee selected and student voted.

The Towner Award is given for informational text for grades 2-6, open nominations, committee selected, student voted. It is named after Bill Towner, longtime Seattle librarian and mentor to dozens of librarians. Bill was an outstanding teacher-librarian who worked with thousands of students from all backgrounds and taught all of them his love of literature. Bill showed us how caring teachers and librarians can make a difference.
