Judy Lopez Book Submission Guidelines

Publishers and authors are invited to submit books to the WNBA/LA Selection Committee to be considered for the Judy Lopez Memorial Award for Children's Literature. The deadline for entries is February 15 each year.

Only works which meet these criteria will be considered:

  • A work may be fiction, nonfiction or poetry.
  • It must have been written for 9- to 12-year-olds.
  • It must have been written by a citizen or resident of the United States.
  • It must have been copyrighted in the United States in the year preceding the award -- for example, in 2015 for the medal to be awarded in 2016.

Send a hardcopy in book form of each title you want to submit to Margaret Flanders. Click here for the mailing address.
