Description of Award

 

NEWBERY MEDAL

What is the Newbery Medal?

 The Newbery Medal is awarded to an author “for the most distinguished contribution to literature for children.”  

 

Who decides the winner?

A division of the American Library Association, the Association for Library Service for Children, selects the winner from books published during the previous year.  The author must be a citizen or a resident of the United States.  The winner is announced by the ALA at their midwinter meeting

 

When did the award begin?

The award began in 1921 when Frederick Melcher, a prominent publisher, suggested that an award be given to an author of children's books.  He also suggested that the award be named for John Newbery.  The first Newbery Medal was awarded to Henrik Van Loon in 1922 for "The Story of Mankind."

 

Why is it called the Newbery Award?

John Newbery, (1713-1767) was a London book publisher.  He is credited with publishing the first books for children with an emphasis on entertainment rather than instruction.  John Newbery was the first publisher to recognize that the reading interests of children differ from those of adults.  He promoted children's books in his London bookstore and persuaded authors to write for children.

 

What does the award look like?

The Newbery Medal is made of bronze.  It was designed by the American sculptor Rene Paul Chambellan.  One side portrays an adult writer sharing his imaginative talents with two children.  The other side depicts a hornbook with the inscription “FOR THE MOST DISTINGUISHED CONTRIBUTION TO LITERATURE FOR CHILDREN.”
