About the Beehive Book Award
Founded in 1980, the Beehive Book Awards are the only children's choice award for literature in the state of Utah! Each year the Children's Literature Association of Utah (CLAU), a volunteer organization of individuals who have a personal or professional interest in children's literature, sponsors the Beehive Book Awards to help motivate young people to read. Children vote from a short list of nominees in the following categories: Children's Fiction (chapter books), Picture Books, Informational Books, Poetry, Graphic Novels, and Young Adult Fiction. The title with the highest percentage of votes from the children in each category wins the award!
CLAU relies on the volunteered time of members to organize the Beehive Book Awards.
