Teen Board Application January-June 2014

We are looking for 20-25 teens between the ages of 13 and 18 years old who are passionate about books and are committed to contributing to to be a part of our Teen Board for January-June 2014.


Opportunities will include:

  • Contributing reviews
  • Writing blog posts
  • Sharing ideas for the site
  • Giving feedback on features we have on the site and scouting trends in your own community

We are looking for a group of diverse teens around the country who are able to weigh in on YA lit and share their opinions on it.

Because we are looking for teens who can actively participate on the Teen Board, it is critical that you ensure that you have enough time to focus. You must give at least a six-month commitment to being on the Teen Board. In addition to offering you a Contributor profile on the site, we will send you a certificate of proof of your involvement on the Teen Board. (That would be something nice to include with your college applications, wouldn’t it?!)  

Applications are due at 9AM on Monday, December 9th to apply to be on the Teen Board from January-June 2014. * If you do not have the time to be on this board for this session, we will be posting a July-December 2014 Teen Board application in April. Also, at that point, there will be an opportunity for members of the board to renew their positions.
We will review the applications by Monday, December 16th and begin the second part of the application process. In this second part, you may be called for an interview and we will also request a recommendation from a teacher, a parent or someone else who knows you well. If you are selected and are under 18, you will also be required to turn in a consent form completed by a parent or guardian.
If you have trouble with the form, please submit your answers to
