The United States Board on Books for Young People (USBBY) is seeking applicants for the Bridge to Understanding Award. This award formally acknowledges the work of adults who create programs that use children´s books to explore cultures around the world in order to promote international understanding among children. Programs that win the award are based in a broad understanding of culture as ways of living and being in the world, and go beyond the surface features of a culture, such as food, fashion, folklore, famous people, and festivals.
The deadline is March 1, 2014. Read more details on the USBBY website.
