Welcome to the Stellar Award

We are sad to announce that the Stellar Award is currently on hiatus. The Young Readers’ Choice Awards of B.C. Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to concentrate our efforts on the Red Cedar Awards. We will be working hard to build up our volunteer base and participation in the society, and may reconsider the administration of the Stellar Award in the future. Please consider visiting our Red Cedar Book Awards site and getting involved. We would love to have you!

Thank you to all of our supporters over the years – volunteers, readers, writers, and publishers. We value your commitment to celebrating Canadian Young Adult literature, as this award would not have been possible without the support of public libraries and schools across B.C. We have been honored by the quality of submissions and the enthusiasm of participants, and will miss all of you.
