There currently is no Hugo Award for young Adult science fiction.

As a result, this year's North American Science Fiction Convention Detcon1http://detcon1.org/, has created the Detcon1 Award for YA and Middle Grade Speculative Fiction.
And the nominees are…
Young Adult
Allegiant by Veronica Roth (Katherine Tegen Books)
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers)
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater (Scholastic Press)
The Summer Prince by Alaya Dawn Johnson (Arthur A Levine Books)
Middle Grade
Handbook for Dragon Slayers by Merrie Haskell (HarperCollins)
House of Hades by Rick Riordan (Disney-Hyperion)
Zombie Baseball Beatdown by Paolo Bacigalupi (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers)
Eligibility to vote:
You must be a Detcon1 member (attending or supporting) to vote. Visit the registration page for more information or to purchase a membership.
How to vote:
Online voting is now available. You can submit a partial ballot and update/edit/complete the ballot at a later date by returning to the page and re-authenticating. Your previous selections will be reloaded into the form, which you can then alter, delete or leave as is.
A paper ballot for voting by mail will be available in the soon-to-be published Progress Report #2.
Deadline
All nomination ballots must be received by 11:59 pm CDT on June 22, 2014.
If you're a member of Detcon 1, and if you are not you can be quite easily even a supporting member, you should vote for these awards. Loncon can keep the Hugos. We have the Detcon!
