You are special – only elementary school kids in the City of Atlanta and Fulton County get to vote for their favorite living author – and then have a chance to see him or her talk about life as an author! Winners have included Rick Riordan, Kate DiCamillo, Jeff Kinney, Mo Willems, Rachel Renee Russell and Lincoln Peirce!

Each year the winning author comes to Atlanta for a special program, speaking to kids about life as an author!Be one of the 4,000+ elementary school kids who vote each year!

Vote for the Milner Award winner at www.themilneraward.org.

Here’s How it Works:

  • Vote once for your favorite author
  • Vote by ballot at your school or library or online at www.themilneraward.org
  • Author must be living and cannot have won before (see list of past winners on website)
  • The school with the most votes will be given front-row seating and one lucky student will present the award to the winning author for the fall program

The Milner Award encourages children to read by empowering them to select their favorite authors and then bring them to Atlanta for the Milner Award Program each year. School children and their teachers and media specialists have the opportunity to come to the free program to meet the author in person and hear them speak. The winning author is chosen by votes gathered both in the elementary schools and in the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System branches.
