Candice CoghillThe Candice Coghill Award is given to the Youth Royal Palm Literary Award winner who receives the highest number of points.

This honor was established in memory of the late Candice Coghill, who was an active member of FWA, a youth writing advocate, and a tireless contributor to the writing community.

Candice wrote two novels, had started a book for first-time cancer patients, and was published posthumously in My Wheels: Florida Writers Collection, Volume 4.

Candice, an instrumental force behind the formation of FWA’s Youth Writers Program, passed away in the fall of 2012.
