The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) offers the Amber Brown Grant to commemorate author Paula Danziger. The grant is awarded annually to one school and includes a visit by a children’s book author or illustrator to encourage children and youth to read and connect them with creative influences.
Eligible applicants are prekindergarten through grade 12 public, private, charter, and parochial schools. SCBWI membership is not required. The school principal must support the school nomination. Applications must be submitted by postal mail.
