Schneider Family Book Award

The Schneider Family Book Awards honor an author or illustrator for a book that embodies an artistic expression of the disability experience for child and adolescent audiences.

1. Three awards for children’s books are giv annually to recognize and honor authors and illustrators for their distinguished portrayal of people living with a disabling condition, one in each age category:

  • young children, ages 0 to 8
  • middle grades, ages 9 to 13
  • teens, ages 14 to 18.

2. The person with the disability may be the protagonist or secondary character.

3. The book must portray some aspect of living with a physical, mental, or emotional disability. Books with death as the main theme are  generally disqualified.

4. The books must be published in English. The award may be given posthumously.

5. When a picture book wins the award, the $5000.00 will be divided equally between the author and illustrator.
