Recipients of the 2014 Ruth and Sylvia Schwartz Children’s Book Awards Announced

The 2014 winners of the Ruth and Sylvia Schwartz Children's Book Awards were announced yesterday at Aldergrove Public School in Markham. Two juries of young readers, made up of students from the school, selected winners of the two $6,000 awards in the Children's Picture Book and Young Adult/Middle Reader categories. This unique jury process allows the students to read the nominated books on their own and then come together to reach a consensus on the winners.
