About How the Newbery Medal came to be: from www.ala.org.

"The Newbery Medal is awarded annually by the American Library Association for the most distinguished American children's book published the previous year... The Newbery Award had became the first children's book award in the world... From the beginning of the awarding of the Newbery and Caldecott Medals, committees could, and usually did, cite other books as worthy of attention. Such books were referred to as Newbery or Caldecott "runners-up." In 1971 the term "runners-up" was changed to "honor books."
