Librarians from public, school and university facilities are encouraged to submit nominations for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) Roger Caras Achievement Award. The award, established in 2005, recognizes an author, publisher or media professional whose work has helped raise children’s awareness of animals and the environment around them.

The ASPCA seeks to honor an individual who embodies the love of animals expressed by the award’s namesake, Roger Caras. Caras has been the voice of the Westminster Dog Show for 20 years, and has written 70 books on animals. In addition, he has written numerous articles on animal and environmental issues and covered pet topics on his radio series, “Pets and Wildlife.”

The ASPCA Roger Caras Award will be presented in conjunction with the Henry Bergh Children’s Book Awards and Honors Ceremony in Washington, D.C., in June 2007. Nominations are due by November 30. To submit a nomination, or learn more about the award, visit the ASPCA website.
