Click here to submit your nominations for the 2017 CLC Book Award!
The Children's Literature Centre presented its first CLC Book Award in 2012. This annual award is given to a children's picture book which most embodies the attributes of: compassion, love, or courage. Our aim is to encourage and support an author/illustrator in the early years of their career, who has published in the United States during within the past three years.
A nominating committee has been formed that includes staff members of the Children's Literature Centre, Education Department faculty members and practicing professionals. Publishers, authors and illustrators, along with the general public, may submit books for consideration. Titles must be submitted for consideration as soon as possible.
Books will be chosen according to the following criteria:
The winning author/illustrator will receive $500.00 and an engraved crystal-glass commemorative, along with having all expenses paid for attending the Spring Festival. The winning title will also be available for Festival attendees to buy. The winning author will be expected to discuss his/her work as it relates to our theme in a presentation and he/she must be available for autographing during the Banquet.
