Vicky Metcalf Award for Literature for Young People
The Vicky Metcalf Award for Literature for Young People, colloquially called the Vicky, is given annually at the Writers' Trust Awards to a writer or illustrator whose body of work has been "inspirational to Canadian youth". It is a top honour for Canadian children's writers and Canadian children's book illustrators. Named after Vicky Metcalf, it has been presented since 1963. Before 2013, the prize was known as the Vicky Metcalf Award for Children's Literature.
In 2002, the award was taken over by the Writers' Trust of Canada from the Canadian Authors Association.
