List of book awards: Goodreads Choice Award, RITA Award by Romance Writers of America, Dorothy Canfield Fisher Children's Book Award, National Book Award. The Manchester Writing Competition offers the UK’s biggest literary awards for unpublished work, offered by the country’s most successful writing school.

The Competition was established by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy in and has awarded more than £, to writers. Early writing for children. This was new. At the beginning of the century very few such enjoyable books for children had existed. Children read, certainly, but the books that they probably enjoyed reading (or hearing) most, were not designed especially for them.

About the Prize The Commonword Diversity Young Adult Fiction Prize welcomes submissions from unpublished authors, writing Middle Grade or Young Adult Fiction, whose writing embraces ethnic diversity either through their own ethnicity and culture and/or in their writing.

The kids, btw, also made the awards out of construction paper (and they were really creative- a crown for the drama queen, a book for the best reader, etc).

This is the first year I have done this- I teach 5th.
