Young Adult Award Passes

The Worldcon Business Meeting at Helsinki ratified a motion passed last year to create a Young Adult Award to be given out with and administered during the Hugo Award process, although the award will not be a Hugo. The first award will be presented next year at Worldcon 76 in San Jose, California. A motion to name the award the Lodestar received first passage and will need to be ratified at next year’s Business Meeting. The passage of the name will not be retroactive, so the first year’s award will simply be known as the YA Award.
