Children's Literature awards won by Pitt students and faculty

In recent years, the Pitt Children’s Literature Program has been gaining a national reputation as one of the top places in the country to study this subject. A remarkable sign of our excellence is that Pitt faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates have now won every major writing/research prize given out by the national Children’s Literature Association.
