More than in most any other literary form, illustration plays an important part in telling stories to small children and in piquing the interest of slightly older readers. For this reason, each year since 1999 illustration students in the Department of Art and Art History in the School of Fine Arts have competed for the Raab prize donated by Susan Salzman Raab ’80 (CLAS). Winners are named in November, just prior to the Connecticut Children’s Book Fair held at UConn.
