Hal Clement Award 2015

The Golden Duck Awards are designed to encourage science fiction literature for children, and have been given annually since 1992. There are three Golden Duck awards given - the Hal Clement Award for Young Adult is given for books written for grades 6 to 12.

The site further describes the award:

"This award is named after Hal Clement (the pen name of Harry Stubbs - he died in 2003), who is a well known science fiction writer and science teacher. He helped children's science fiction programming wherever he went, and was an all-around nice guy. The award is for science fiction books written for grades 6 - 12 (approximately) that have a young adult protagonist. The science should be as correct as possible, but still a good story."
