2021-22 CYRM Nominees







Here is the fine print to participate in the CYRM voting process at Taft. 


  • To become a qualified voter, you must experience all the nominated books in a category by reading the books, having the books read to you, or using a combination of the two.
  • You may read books in more than one category, but you must complete each category to be able to vote in that category.
  • You are entitled to ONE vote in each category you complete.
  • Votes placed the week before spring break will count towards the totals sent to the CYRM office.

Remember, If you have already read any of the CYRM titles, they count towards your total and you will not have to re-read them.
