Thought this might be of interest to some of you. :)

YoungMinds are asking publishers, librarians, and young people to put forward submissions for this year’s YoungMinds book award. Books must be works of fiction or biography for young people aged 12+ published between 1 June 2009 and 31 May 2010, which encourage self-esteem and help them to cope with the stresses and challenges of growing up.

Nominations are open until 24th April 2010 for young people up to age 25. 10 books will then be chosen for the longlist. Young people, children’s authors and mental health professionals will then take part in the judging between May and October to choose the winner. The £2,000 prize which is, sponsored by the national reading charity Booktrust, will be presented at an awards ceremony in November 2010.
