Young people suggest the books to be nominated and vote for the winners. Teachers and librarians introduce the books to students and conduct related activities, but no adults vote. Students may vote for books in any of the four age-group categories, but they must read all of the books in a category in order to vote on them. Nominees are voted on in March and the winner is announced in May.
