Instituted in 1973, the Golden Kite Awards are the only children’s literary award judged by a jury of peers. More than 1,000 books are entered each year. The Golden Kite Awards recognize excellence in children’s literature in seven categories:
The winner in each category will receive $2,500 plus an additional $1,000 to donate to a nonprofit organization of their choice. Each honor winner will receive $500 plus an additional $250 to donate.
