YALSA Nonfiction: Purpose

The purpose of the YALSA Nonfiction Award:

The award will:

  • Recognize the best in the field of nonfiction books (at this time, only books will be considered for the award) materials for young adults
  • Promote the growing number of nonfiction books published for young adults
  • Inspire wider readership in the genre
  • Give recognition to the importance of the genre
  • Position YALSA as an authority in the field of nonfiction for young adults

Five points here. Note that the purposes are both to recognize and promote nonfiction books for teens. By so recognizing and promoting, YALSA positions itself as an authority.

This is pretty straightforward. Next week: Charge!
