Américas Award Library Collections

The Consortium of Latin American Studies Programs (CLASP) founded the Américas Award in 1993 to motivate and applaud authors, illustrators and publishers who produce exemplary children’s and young adult books that portray Latin America, the Caribbean, or Latinos in the United States, and to provide teachers with recommendations for classroom use. CLASP offers up to two annual book awards, together with honorable mentions, and a commended list of titles.

In 2017, the UNC-Duke Consortium will provide library collections to the schools of teachers who have demonstrated a commitment to integrating Latin American and Caribbean studies through their participation in the Consortium’s professional development activities.
