NYLA/SSL LITERARY AWARDS
Launched in 2007, The 3 Apples Book Award is awarded annually in three different categories: Young Reader, Children, and Teen. The award was developed to encourage the joys of reading for pleasure. What makes the award unique is that titles are culled and nominated entirely by kids, for kids. School and Children’s Librarians from across the state oversee the process, but the titles chosen are generated entirely by participating youth.
In 1991, NYLA/SSL established the Knickerbocker Award for Juvenile Literature. It recognizes a New York State author who has demonstrated, through a body of work, a consistently superior quality which supports the curriculum and the educational goals of New York State Schools.The award is named for a group of 19th century New York State authors who wished to nurture a national literature. It is presented annually to a living author/illustrator currently residing in New York State.
