A $1000 prize is offered annually by friends and colleagues in honour of Judith Saltman to an outstanding student graduating from the Master of Arts in Children’s Literature (MACL).
Professor Judith Saltman is recognized internationally as an expert on Canadian children’s literature. In her 33 years as a professor at the UBC iSchool, Judith championed one of the first interdisciplinary degrees by working with colleagues to establish the Master of Arts in Children’s Literature (MACL) and serving as Chair of the Program.
The prize is assigned on the basis of academic merit and exceptional promise in the study of children’s literature. The award is made on the recommendation of MACL faculty members and UBC iSchool in consultation with the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.
