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.
