About the Competition
Did you know that over the past 30 years, New York City public schoolchildren have written and illustrated enough books to fill a small library? These are no ordinary books: they are all made by hand and cover a wide range subjects and genres. The best reach heights of artistry and imagination that leave readers awestruck, or laughing, or crying, depending on the author’s intention.
Bookmaking & Your Curriculum
How does a single school program address the needs of children across skill and grade levels 3-12? By reaching each child at his or her own level.

The Awards Ceremony
At every EJK Bookmaking ceremony, the young writers and artists walk onstage to receive their awards, cheered on by their families and teachers. Presentations can differ from place to place: One may feature an eminent speaker, another may be part of a festival or special event. But always, the books are on gorgeous, and public, display.
