The last day of #alamw18 brought the YMAs, the closing session and the travel back home!
The morning began with the Youth Media Awards, which left everyone in the crowd cheering and crying over the winners and honorees.

I am SO PROUD of my committee’s Printz winner and honors! These books are all truly superb, and I highly recommend you read and support them. These are all books I have hugged to my chest many times. @nina_lacour @JasonReynolds83 @angiecthomas @DHeiligman @lainitaylor #alayma pic.twitter.com/oAnLuk2gen

While some people were flying back home, a few lucky ones were driving back with impressive swag.

Finally, you’re home, and you’re wiped out—but still excited to show off all you’ve learned!

To #ALAleftbehind folks who participated in the #ymapjparty, we’re excited you joined in on the #alayma!
My students thought I was a bit crazy today watching the #alayma streaming from my desk. ‘It’s like the MTV/ Academy/ Grammy/ you-fill-in-the-blank for books, kids!! I am nerding out over here!’ #alamw18 #alaleftbehind #librarianproblems
