Each year, the FAPA President’s Book Awards program recognizes book publishing excellence and creativity in design, content, and production for North American authors and publishers. Librarians, book industry professionals, and educators from Florida and other states will judge content, theme, layout, and cover design elements.

FAPA awards gold, silver, and bronze medals to finalists in each category. Winners are announced by email and listed on the FAPA website in early July. All category winners receive their medal, a digital certificate, and 10 medal decals at the FAPA President’s Book Awards Banquet. FAPA issues a press release announcing the winners that can be sent to the media and used on an author’s website, blog, and on social media.

At Literary Classics, it is our mission to honor excellence in children's and young adult literature, thereby encouraging a passion for reading while promoting education, imagination and character in the minds of young readers.

The Latin text on the Literary Classics awards seal says it best. Loosely translated, it states that classic literature is: The key to knowledge and creativity while promoting strong core values.
