The LLLAwards are give each year by the Extensive Reading Foundation. Publishers from around the world nominated their best books from the previous year. The nominees are judged by an international jury. Up to three finalists are decided in each category. The finalists are announced in April. Teachers and students can read the books and vote online as well as make comments. That voting and those comments are considered by the judges who determine the winners and finalists.
