Call for Sibert Award suggestions
2012: It’s a great year for nonfiction!
The 2013 ALSC/Robert F. Sibert Informational Book Award Committee invites you to submit titles for consideration.
The Sibert Award is presented annually to the author, author/illustrator, co-authors or author and illustrator of the most distinguished informational book published during the preceeding year (2012). Honor books may be named.
Informational books are defined as those written and illustrated to present, organize, and interpret documentable factual material for children from birth through age fourteen. Poetry and traditional literature are not eligible.
Authors and illustrators must be U.S. citizens or residents. Other terms and criteria can be found on the ALSC website: http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/alsc/awardsgrants/bookmedia/sibertmedal/sibertterms/sibertmedaltrms.cfm
The 2013 Sibert Commitee calls on ALSC members to submit titles for consideration. Please remember, only informational books from the 2012 publishing year are under consideration for this award. Suggestions are accepted throughout the year (but sooner is better).
Please submit your suggestions to the committee chair, Kathie Meizner, at firstname.lastname@example.org
