The Pacific Northwest Library Association's Young Reader's Choice Award is the oldest children's choice award in the U.S. and Canada.

Nominations are taken only from children, teachers, parents and librarians in the Pacific Northwest ~ Alaska, Alberta, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana and Washington. Winners represent popularity with young readers in 3 levels: junior (4th-6th grades), intermediate (7th-9th grades) and senior (10th-12 grades), and are announced in mid April each year. *In 1990 the original award was divided into Senior and Junior.
