Emerging Voices Award

The SCBWI On-The-Verge Emerging Voices Award was created in 2012 to foster the emergence of diverse voices in children’s books. It's given to any writer or illustrator from an ethnic and/or cultural background that underrepresented in American literature.

Martin and Sue Schmitt of the 455 Foundation provided the funding for this generous grant. Each winner receives an all-expenses paid trip to the SCBWI Winter Conference in New York to meet with editors and agents, a press release to publishers, a year of free membership to SCBWI, and an SCBWI mentor for a year.

The award this year went to Mary Louise Sanchez, Alex Brown, and Sandra Headen, PhD.
