Event Name:New Offering- And the Winner Is...
Competency:Youth Services
Description:Caldecott. Newbery. Printz.
If you’ve been in the youth library world for even a short time, you know about the big three.  How about the other fourteen awards announced at the ALA Midwinter Meeting? Did you know there are several established, prestigious awards for youth literature? This webinar will give an overview of the Youth Media Awards, the criteria for selecting winning titles, and introduce the audience to the cornucopia of national awards for youth literature. Both those who work with children or teens and those who enjoy reading books written for younger audiences will benefit from this webinar.
Learning Objectives:
  • Gain insight into the selection process for most Youth Media Awards
  • Exploration of lesser known youth literature awards, with emphasis on diversity.
  • Brief history of the awards and how they reflect publishing materials for children and teens.
Amanda L. S. Murphy is the Youth Services Assistant Manager at the Warren-Trumbull County Public Library, where she assists or presents programs for children from preschool through high school. Amanda has served on the 2012 Morris Committee and the 2017 Odyssey Committee. She continues on her quest to read most of the Youth Media Awards winner and honor titles (lists completed thus far: Belpre illustrator, Caldecott, CSK illustrator, Geisel and most of the Odyssey titles). There's a spreadsheet involved.
