2006 Midwinter Awards

The American Library Association (ALA), the oldest and largest library association in the world,holds an annual business meeting known as the ALA Midwinter Meeting. Highlights include the announcement of the "Academy Awards" of children's literature - the Newbery and Caldecott Medals - and other awards and lists recognizing the best in literature and audiovisual materials for children, teens and adults.

Recognized worldwide for the high quality they represent, ALA awards guide parents, educators, librarians and others in selecting the best materials for youth. Selected by judging committees composed of librarians and other children's experts, the awards encourage original and creative work. Winners are announced at the Midwinter Meeting and award presentations are held at the ALA Annual Conference in June.
