William Allen White Children’s Book Awards 2016–2018

The William Allen White Children’s Book Award program began after the famed journalist’s death on Jan. 29, 1944—Kansas Day—when two memorial foundations were created in his name. Emporia State University launched the William Allen White Children’s Book Award, which was guided by Ruth Garver Gagliardo, who was hired by White to write for The Emporia Gazette.
