Caldecott Challenge

The Caldecott Medal is an honor awarded yearly to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children. The Caldecott Challenge provides students the opportunity to be awarded a medal of their own! Students must read ALL the winning Caldecott titles, from 1938 to the present, and complete a response form for each title, to be eligible their own Caldecott medal. Parents and other family members are encouraged to complete the Challenge with their student. Response forms must completed by the second week in April (to allow time for ordering/engraving). Medals will be awarded at the end of the school year.
