The New Zealand Post Book Awards for Children and Young Adults were established in 1997. They are sponsored by New Zealand Post, organised and managed by Booksellers New Zealand and supported by Creative New Zealand and Book Tokens (NZ) Ltd. Awards are presented to New Zealand books in five categories, plus a “Book of the Year” and a “Children’s Choice”.
Prior to 1997, the awards were known as the AIM Children’s Book Awards.
