From  the official Stan Lee Excelsior Award website

The Stan Lee Excelsior Award is the only nationwide book award for graphic novels and manga – where kids aged 11-16 choose the winner by rating each book as they read it!Eight graphic novels are selected for the shortlist and it now attracts dozens and dozens of schools and public libraries from all over the UK – from Scotland to Jersey, from Belfast to Gateshead! The overall goal of this scheme is to encourage reading amongst teenagers. However, its secondary target is to raise the profile of graphic novels and manga amongst school librarians and teachers. This storytelling medium has been a largely underused resource within education for many years. The Stan Lee Excelsior Award attempts to highlight some of the amazing books that are out there – books that fully deserve to be in our school libraries alongside regular fiction!We work closely with both the School Library Association and the Stan Lee Foundation. We are thrilled that ‘Stan The Man’ has given us his blessing and his permission to name this award after him.

‘Nuff said!
