Press Release Fun: Nominate 2020 Titles for the Green Earth Book Award!

If I know authors and illustrators then I know that awards can be extremely welcome in a given year. This little tidbit just fell into my lap and I knew I just had to share. Behold!

2021 Green Earth Book Award Nominations are Open

The Nature Generation is accepting nominations for the national 2021 Green Earth Book Award October 1 through December 15, 2020. Books for youth that best convey the message of environmental stewardship will be selected by an expert panel of judges in four categories: Picture Book; Children’s Fiction; Young Adult Fiction; and Children’s & Young Adult Nonfiction.

The short list will be announced in March 2021, and the winners will be announced on Earth Day, April 22, 2021.  The award in each of the four categories will be comprised of a monetary award of $500 to the author and $500 to the illustrator/photographer (or $1,000 if the author and illustrator/photographer is the same person).

The Nature Generation, an environmental nonprofit, created the annual Green Earth Book Award in 2005 to promote books that inspire children to grow a deeper appreciation, respect, and responsibility for their natural environment.
