It's 2018 Cybils Award Time: On your marks, get set....get ready to judge!

So you've been busy reading and reviewing all year long and, golly,  you've read some great books. In fact, you thought some of them were so good that they should probably win an award. Well, here's you chance to help decide which books should be chosen to receive a coveted Cybils award.

That's right! The Cybils is looking for more than a few good judges and it's pretty easy to apply:

First, you need to find out what being a Cybils judge involves and to do that, go here to read the FAQs, which includes the Judging Overview, the Duties of a Round 1 Judge, and finally, the Duties of a Round 2 Judge. This way, you can decide what will work best for you.

Next, just fill out the application, which you can find HERE. Oh, yes, and the deadline to apply is September 9, 2018 at 11:59 PM EDT.

Bookish people are the best judges of books and the Cybils needs your expertise whether you review on a blog, vlog, and/or Goodreads.

I been a Middle Grade Fiction Cybils judge for five years now and I have had the pleasure of reading some wonderful books and working with some great people, all of whom were serious about the work we were doing. Now, I am happy to say, I will be the Middle Grade Fiction chairperson this year. Ms. Yingling has decided to try other things and I am looking forward to taking on this new phase in my Cybils life.

So, come be a part of the fun! And if you can't apply to be a judge, you can always nominate your favorite books when nomination begin.
