New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults – HELL Children’s Choice Award

Christchurch City Libraries lists literary prize winners and links to catalogue searches, but we may not hold copies of all titles mentioned.

The New Zealand Book Children’s Choice Award is one of eight awards organised and administered by Booksellers New Zealand and supported by Creative New Zealand and Book Tokens (NZ) Ltd. Until 2014 the awards were sponsored by NZ Post. Prior to 1997, the awards were known as the AIM Children’s Book Awards. Prior to 2010, only one Children’s Choice Overall Award winner was announced. Since 2010, Children’s Choice winners in all categories have also been announced.
