Américas Award for Children's and Young Adult Literature

Gold seals available for winners

The Américas Award is given in recognition of U.S. works of fiction, poetry, folklore, or selected non-fiction (from picture books to works for young adults) published in the previous year in English or Spanish that authentically and engagingly portray Latin America, the Caribbean, or Latinos in the United States. By combining both and linking the Americas, the award reaches beyond geographic borders, as well as multicultural-international boundaries, focusing instead upon cultural heritages within the hemisphere. The award is sponsored by the national Consortium of Latin American Studies Programs (CLASP) and coordinated by the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS), University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Seal prices as of July 1, 2001 (prices include shipping, handling and sales tax if applicable):

10 seals $2.00

1000 seals $100.00
