AWARD-WINNING BOOKS & AUTHORS

Here you will find an ever-updating (I hope!) collection of links to sites listing book and author awards for children’s books and teen books. This page certainly may not be inclusive of every award and list.  (Please let me know if any of these award links do not work, or if there are awards that I should list here.)

 

And remember–some of the very best books never won any awards!!

Also check out a VERY comprehensive DATABASE OF AWARD-WINNING CHILDREN’S BOOKS managed by librarian Lisa R. Bartle which can be found here: http://www.dawcl.com/awards.html.  “The DAWCL has over 8,700 records from 102 awards across six English-speaking countries (United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, England, and Ireland).”

 

STATE BOOK AWARDS: There is also a comprehensive listing of awards given by state associations at author Cynthia Leitich Smith’s site at: http://www.cynthialeitichsmith.com/lit_resources/awards/stateawards.html
