Help Choose the 2016 Irma Black Award and Cook Prize Winners!

September 28, 2015

ibalogoThe Irma Simonton Black and James H. Black Award for Excellence in Children’s Literature (Irma Black Award) goes to an outstanding book for young children–a book in which text and illustrations are inseparable, each enhancing and enlarging on the other to produce a singular whole. The Irma Black Award is unusual in that children are the final judges of the winning book.

If you work with six to eight year olds and would like to help choose this year’s Irma Black Award winner and honor books, please fill out a registration form for your class.

Cook Prize_webThe Cook Prize honors the best science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) picture book published for children aged eight to ten. It is the only national children’s choice award honoring a STEM book.

If you work with eight to ten-year olds and would like to help choose this year’s Cook Prize winner and honor books, please fill out a registration form.

The winners and honorees are honored at an award ceremony at Bank Street each May. Watch the 2015 ceremony here.
