Beehive Award 2016–2017

The Children's Literature Association of Utah (CLAU) is a volunteer organization of individuals who have a personal or professional interest in children's literature. The organization's purposes are: to encourage the reading, study, and writing of children's literature; to provide a forum for all points of view and levels of experience in children's books; and to gather and share information about children's literature. The association sponsors the Beehive Book Awards that motivate reading. CLAU annually sponsors awards in five categories: Picture Book Award, Fiction Book Award, Informational Book Award, Young Adults' Book Award, and Children's Poetry Book Award. Winners are chosen from the nominated books by the children of Utah, who vote for their favorite books.
