We are looking for excellence in writing and storytelling of historically accurate children’s books of fiction or non-fiction depicting important events and personalities throughout the history of the United States.
The winner will receive $13,000–in honor of the 13 original colonies, a lifetime pass to the New-York Historical Society, and a medallion created by American artist Clarice Smith. Two “Honorable Mention” authors will also receive medallion and $500 each.
