Award calendar & Book Submission
Finalists Announced This Year!
Beginning in 2020, Jane Addams Children’s Book Finalists—10 to 12 books in each of the categories of Younger and Older Children—will be announced several months prior to the announcement of winning and honor titles. This will allow for a larger body of books to be recognized and an opportunity for young people to contribute recommendations to the selection committee. In order to accommodate this change, there are shifts in the Award’s calendar year.
