Award description

The William Allen White Children's Book Awards are decided by the votes of Kansas school children who read the books chosen by the selection committee. Each year, the committee nominates approximately a dozen books for children in each of two grade levels (3rd – 5th grades and 6th – 8th grades) to read. The winning books are featured at each year's awards ceremony, and their authors are presented with appropriate recognition.
