Many schools hold their own mock Caldecott competitions in which each student, or each class, or the school as a whole chooses their favorite picture book of the previous year. I've been the recipient of a few in the past, but rarely any as great as these:

Jaron, Mamie, and Troy of Central Avenue School in Madison, New Jersey, drew and sent me these CAS-a-cott medals for my book, Frankenstein Takes the Cake.  Click the image to see them larger.
Thanks, guys!

I would imagine awards like this mean just as much as a Caldecott! What budding little artists with excellent taste!

I doubt there is a higher honor. Congrats!
