The Américas Award for Children’s and Young Adult Literature is literary award presented annually that recognizes high quality "children’s and young adult books that portray Latin America, vis mere the Caribbean, or Latinos in the United States, and to provide teachers with recommendations for classroom use." It was first awarded in 1993 by the Consortium of Latin American Studies Programs (CLASP). The award is presented annually at a ceremony at the Library of Congress during Hispanic Heritage Month, along with coordinating workshops for teachers.

History

The Américas Award was proposed in 1992 within the Teaching and Outreach Committee of the Consortium of Latin American Studies Programs. Julie Kline, at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, served as the committee chair for the first 3 years of the award and then went on to be the award coordinator for many years. Coordination for the award later moved to Latin American Studies centers at Tulane and Vanderbilt Universities. A full research collection of all winning, honor, and commended titles is kept and maintained by the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee at the Golda Meir Library.

Beskrivelser

The Américas Award for Children’s and Young Adult Literature is literary award presented annually that recognizes high quality "children’s and young adult books that portray Latin America, the Caribbean, or Latinos in the United States, and to provide teachers with recommendations for classroom use." It was first awarded in 1993 by the Consortium of Latin American Studies Programs (CLASP). The award is presented annually at a ceremony at the Library of Congress during Hispanic Heritage Month, along with coordinating workshops for teachers.

History

The Américas Award was proposed in 1992 within the Teaching and Outreach Committee of the Consortium of Latin American Studies Programs. Julie Kline, at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, served as the committee chair for the first 3 years of the award and then went on to be the award coordinator for many years. Coordination for the award later moved to Latin American Studies centers at Tulane and Vanderbilt Universities. A full research collection of all winning, honor, and commended titles is kept and maintained by the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee at the Golda Meir Library.
