Award description

Award Criteria

Books to be considered for this award must be published in the calendar year preceding the presentation of the award.
The award is given for a single publication, not for the body of an author/illustrator's work.
The work must be written or illustrated by a person who was born in Wisconsin, or is currently living in Wisconsin, or who lived in Wisconsin for a significant length of time.
The work must be notable and contribute to the world of children's literature.
Only original works written or illustrated for children or young adults will be considered. Books that are traditional in origin will be eligible if they are the result of original research and if the retelling or interpretation is that of the author or illustrator.
Textbooks will not be considered.
