Welcome to MYRA, the Minnesota Youth Reading Awards, home of the Maud Hart Lovelace and Star of the North Book awards.
It is Minnesota Youth Reading Awards' (MYRA's) purpose to administer yearly "read and vote" awards programs, providing nominee titles that offer opportunities for Minnesota youth to see themselves and others in the pages, to make new connections, and to engage and enjoy the world of reading.
Proudly 100% volunteer powered! Connecting Minnesota youth to amazing books for 40 years.
Due to so many changes in the past few weeks, we will extend our voting window through June 15. You can access all voting materials on our website: myrahome.org/voting
We have cancelled our spring announcement event due to social distancing guidelines. We will announce the 2020-2021 nominees on April 18 through email and social media.
Our board is also working on contacting authors of the current Star of the North nominees to see if they would be willing to make a video of themselves reading their books. We will let you know if anything becomes available.
