The Milner Award winner is the guest of honor at the Milner Award program held each year. An author can win only once and must accept the Milner Award in person. The award consists of an honorarium, a commissioned glass sculpture of a quill and inkwell by Hans Frabel, and the honor of being voted the children’s favorite author. During the programs, attended by over 1,800 elementary school students, the Milner Award winner discusses life as an author and how plots and characters are developed, giving children a glimpse of a writer’s life and process.
