The ILA Children’s and Young Adults’ Book Awards are intended for newly published authors who show unusual promise in the children’s and young adults’ book field. Awards are given for fiction and nonfiction in each of three categories: primary, intermediate, and young adult. Books from all countries and published in English for the first time during the calendar year will be considered.

When a book by a newly published author is competing against a book by an acclaimed adult author or a juvenile author who has previously won a major award, preference will be given to the newly published author.
