The Nature Generation (formerly the Newton Marasco Foundation) is accepting nominations for the 2014 Green Earth Book Award.
The Award was created by The Nature Generation and Salisbury University, both members of the Children’s Book Guild, to promote books that inspire children to have a deeper appreciation, respect and responsibility for their natural environment. The annual award is given to books that raise awareness of the beauty of our natural world and the responsibility we have to protect it.
Awards are given in five categories:
Picture Book: books for young readers in which the visual and verbal narratives together tell the story
Children's Fiction: novels for young readers up to age 12
Young Adult Fiction: books for readers from age 13 to 21
Children's Nonfiction: nonfiction books for readers from infancy to age 12
Young Adult Nonfiction: nonfiction books for readers from 12 to age 21
2014 marks the 10th anniversary of the Green Earth Awards, which will be celebrated during the Read Green Festival in Washington, D.C., September 17 – 19. Watch this space for details!
