Notable Books for a Global Society Award Practitioner Award & Research Award
The Notable Books for a Global Society (NBGS) Award is presented by the Children’s Literature and Reading (CL/R) SIG through the International Literacy Association to two outstanding educators each year: one with a practitioner focus, and one with a research focus.
The NBGS Award rewards passionate educators dedicated to creative and innovative use and exploration of literature from the NBGS in both pre-K – 12th grade and university classrooms, as well as in other learning contexts (such as libraries, after-school programs, summer enrichment programs, literacy outreach programs, etc.)
All applicants must be current members of the Children’s Literature and Reading Special Interest Group (ILA CL/R SIG). CL/R SIG elected board members and NBGS Committee Members are precluded from applying to CL/R awards, including this NBGS Award. CL/R SIG members in volunteer positions and other committee members are welcome to apply. Successful applicants may reapply every three years.
All award applications must be typed and submitted as one complete file.
Submit all complete applications to Dr. Anne Katz, Chair of the NBGS Award, at firstname.lastname@example.org
