    PLEASE NOTE: This award listing combines several awards that were previously listed individually. These awards are collectively referred to as the North Carolina Book Awards in the annual press releases announcing the award, and this term will help users find award winners. Awards are administered primarily by one organization in partnership with various other entities, and they are announced together each year. While each award is distinct and has its own history, trying to maintain individual award pages for each one resulted in a lot of unnecessary duplication and makes it more difficult for users to find related awards.

    (English, Avís tècnic/desambiguació)

    Ragan Old North State Award for Nonfiction: Given for achievement in non-fiction, this award honors Sam Ragan, poet, critic, publisher, and the first secretary of the present North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
