Carnegie Medal

The Carnegie Medal is a British literary award that annually recognises one outstanding new book for children or young adults. (It is the equivalent to America's Newbery Medal.) It is conferred upon the author by the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals. CILIP calls it "the UK's oldest and most prestigious book award for children's writing" and says that writers call it "the one they want to win" (quotation marks original).The Medal is named after the Scottish-born American philanthropist Andrew Carnegie (1835–1919), who founded more than 2800 libraries in the English-speaking world, including at least one in more than half of British library authorities.
