Digitally Lit Choice Awards - The Results are in

Updated: May 8

We want to send a big thank you to everyone who participated in our first-ever Digitally Lit Choice Awards Ceremony!

The virtual celebration honoured Atlantic Canadian books and creators that made our readers think, feel and imagine, as well as those that instilled a sense of community and place..Plus, our youth were keen to celebrate those who continue to go above and beyond to support and encourage them in their work

All of the youth currently or presently involved with Digitally Lit were asked to cast one vote for each award. No one suggested any books for the categories: everything was in the hands of the youth.
