I'm not sure of the proper formatting for references on a shorter article like this one. Any help on this matter would be appreciated.K. Scott Bailey 08:08, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

Length doesn't affect it too much. In the references section format them with full citation information in any of the major styles such as MLA, etc. You can also use the references templates to handle a lot of the work for you. I think that's cleaner. In any case see WP:CITE for more information. As to the article it needs some information about why the award is important, such as citations of the award, discussions in the press, is it well respected, etc. Right away in the lead you should answer why this award matters (or doesn't), so that the reader knows whether this is an award just for the sake of having an award or does it have meaning. Is there any information or assessment of the integrity of the granting organization, etc. Hope that helps. - Taxman Talk 12:30, 13 March 2007 (UTC) This will prevent status if you dnt look at the peoepl insurance it will file agiaxs you in a matter of time!!!!

I added the 2008 winner to the list and added a sentence or two in the first paragraph. The award is well-known and when Scott O'Dell died, his obituary appeared in the NY Times acknowledging his significant contributions as a writer and as the founder of this award. I'm not sure how the references work, or even which references might be most appropriate. I'm a newbie here, but I'll check into it and get back to this page soon.
