I hadn't heard the claim as a myth when I read the book, so it didn't jump out at me, but it does seem a likely origin if it's now something claimed as fact.

In the context of the book, the narrator's not supposed to be a reliable source of fact, so I guess it's Mark Haddon's deliberately-garbled version of the EFF awards, distorted to reflect the main character's understanding.

It's a good book, by the way.
