The call for entries for the 2022 Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize is now closed.

For enquiries please contact

The Prize aims to inspire young people to read about science and promotes the writing of excellent, accessible STEM books for under-14s. The Prize is unique in that the winner is selected by judging panels made up of young people across the country.  

Find out the terms of entry.

Please get in touch if you have any questions. 

How is the Prize judged?

A shortlist of no more than six books will be selected by an adult judging panel appointed by the Royal Society. The winner will then be selected by groups of young people in judging panels across the UK. They form their own judging panels, discuss the books and, as a whole, decide the winner of the prize.

More information about the judging criteria can be found here.
