Whippoorwill Book Award for Rural YA Literature

The Whippoorwill Book Award for Rural YA Literature is given to titles written for young adults that accurately portray rural settings, communities, and populations, in addition to meeting other general guidelines for excellence in the field of Young Adult literature.

This award was developed to help teachers find works that do not portray the often found rural stereotypes and could be used to help facilitate classroom discussions.
