ABTA: Home of the American Bridge Teachers' Association

“To help those who teach bridge to do it better, more effectively, more knowledgeably, more professionally.”

One of ABTA’s most important functions is determining the winners of our annual bridge teacher’s book or software of the year awards, which are presented at our annual convention (Chicago in summer of 2015).

Winners are selected based on the value of the work to bridge teachers and/or students. Up to three awards may be given – one in each of the three categories shown below.

● Best beginner/novice book of the year

● Best intermediate/advanced book of the year

● Best software of the year.


2015 selection committee members are Jerry Helms, Brenda Montague, Jeff Schuett, Karen Walker and Pat Harrington (chairman). 

Submitting authors are asked to provide a copy of their work to each committee member. For more details on submitting or to suggest a work to be considered, email Pat at mrsbridge@embarqmail.com.
