 Awards, which include a cash stipend, are given to books written by U.S. citizens "that have contributed most significantly to human awareness, to the vitality of our national culture and to the spirit of excellence." Panels of three judges select the winners from candidates that were published during the previous calendar year. Categories have changed through the years.
