Lieutenant Governor's Award for Literary Excellence 2004-2013

from wikipedia accessed 6/27/13

The Lieutenant Governor's Award for Literary Excellence is administered by the BC Book Prizes and recognizes a writer who has contributed significantly to the development of literary excellence in British Columbia, as well as having written a substantial body of literary work throughout his or her career.

The recipient receives a cash award of $5,000 and a commemorative certificate.

The Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Literary Excellence was first conceived in the spring of 2002. Led by the late Carol Shields, a group of respected BC writers met with the current Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, the Honourable Iona Campagnolo to initiate a special provincial literary arts award. Inspired by Shields, this meeting resulted in the establishment of the Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Literary Excellence.
