The Green Earth Book Awards
from here: "Green Earth Book Award is the nation’s first environmental stewardship book award for children and young adult books. Over 128 winning and honor books have been honored since 2005. The award continues to garner attention from the literary world as an esteemed award, bringing recognition to authors, but more importantly, providing the award-winning books to children.
Each year, an expert jury selects books that best convey the message of environmental stewardship in these categories:
Picture Book: books for young readers in which the visual and verbal narratives tell the story
Children’s Fiction: novels for young readers up to age 12
Young Adult Fiction: books for readers from age 13 to 21
Children’s Nonfiction: nonfiction books for readers from infancy to age 12
Young Adult Nonfiction: nonfiction books for readers from 12 to age 21"
