  • 1. NCTE Award for Excellence in Poetry for Children 2014 http://www.ncte.org/awards/poetry NCTE established its Award for Excellence in Poetry for Children in 1977 to honor a living American poet for his or her aggregate work for children ages 3–13.
  • 2. Criteria: ~ Literary Merit (art and craft of aggregate work--as poet or anthologist) Creating books of poetry that demonstrate imagination, authenticity of voice, evidence of a strong persona, and universality / timelessness are essential. In short, we're looking for a poet who creates poetry books that contain clean, spare lines; use language and form in fresh ways; surprise the reader by using syntax artistically; excite the reader's imagination with keen perceptions and sharp images; touch the reader's emotions. A maker of word events is what we're looking for. ~ Poet's or Anthologist's Contributions Aggregate work, evident potential for growth and evolution in terms of craft, and excellence are considered. ~ Evolution of the Poet's or Anthologist's Work Technical and artistic development as evidenced in the poetry, evidence of risk, change, and artistic stamina, and evidence of different styles and modes of expression are considered. ~ Appeal to Children Although the appeal to children of a poet's or anthologist's work is an important consideration, the art and craft must be the primary criterion for evaluation. Evidence of students' excitement for the poetry and evidence of childlike quality, yet poem's potential for stirring fresh insights and feelings should be apparent.
