ABOUT THE IRMA BLACK AWARD AND COOK PRIZE

Irma Black wrote and edited children’s books. She was a longtime member of the Bank Street Writers Laboratory. The Irma S. and James H. Black Award for Excellence in Children’s Literature is awarded to an exceptional book whose text and illustration augment each other in such a manner that they create an unforgettable whole.

The Cook Prize is named in honor of Don Cook of the Bank Street Graduate School of Education and Michael Cook (no relation) of the Bank Street School for Children. The Cook Prize is awarded to an outstanding picture book focused on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) for those aged eight to ten.

ABOUT THE BANK STREET COLLEGE OF EDUCATION

The mission of Bank Street College is to improve the education of children and their teachers by applying to the education process all available knowledge about learning and growth, and by connecting teaching and learning meaningfully to the outside world. In so doing, we seek to strengthen not only individuals, but the community as well, including family, school, and the larger society in which adults and children, in all their diversity, interact and learn. We see in education the opportunity to build a better society.
