The SLA Information Book Award is an annual event celebrating information books, and is designed to support school libraries and to reinforce the importance of non-fiction whilst highlighting the high standard of resources available.
The first award ceremony took place in 2011.
Here are some really useful resources, shared with SLA, that will enable schools and reading groups to start their work with information groups. Please adapt them for your particular circumstances but also, please credit the original source too.

For 2016's National Non-Fiction Month in November FCBG have created a free resource pack available for all to download, to facilitate in brainstorming and planning a session or two around writing and publishing your own non-fiction book as a group.
The SLA Information Book Award is run entirely on sponsorship kindly donated by friends and supporters of the Award. No money is taken from the SLA budget so all staff time, the cost of the judging, prizes for the winners and the final award ceremony must be covered by the sponsors' donations.
