The Children’s Book Award

The Children’s Book Award promotes excellence in Canadian children’s book publishing by promoting and awarding a monetary prize to a Canadian children’s author or illustrator.

Any Canadian children’s author or illustrator who have been nominated in the past three years for a children’s book award program may apply to this fund to support a library or community organization visit in a small or rural community anywhere in Canada.

Applicants can apply for up to $500 to offset expenses of visits to public or school libraries or community organizations in small and rural communities (populations served under 20,000).
