Updated: Mar 30, 2021
The 35th annual EJK Awards will be presented to this year's winners and honorees at the Fay B. Kaigler Children's Book Festival on April 13. You are invited to join us for the ceremony and meet these early career authors and illustrators, hear about their work, their artistic processes, and who influenced and encouraged them to pursue their artistic dreams.
The ceremony will include remarks by Southern Miss President Rodney Bennett, the release of the documentary trailer, and a celebratory video from kidlit stars, EJK Award winners and honorees.
