This came across my email today and I thought it looked like a great way to recognize the fabulous elementary and middle school librarians in our midst. It's super-fun to nominate amazing people for being amazing...Just saying...
Do you know a creative elementary or middle school librarian/library program? Nominations are due by April 30 for SLJ’s Build Something Bold award.
The criteria includes:
- · Creativity in space and program design
- · Effectively integrating curricular objectives toward enhancing literacy through hands-on activity
- · Demonstrated student engagement and impact on learning
- · Cost-effectiveness and ease of replication
Nominations can be made by applicants themselves or administrators, peers, or institutions. A winner and two finalists will receive cash awards and be profiled in an SLJ feature story. The winner will also receive a classroom pack from sponsor LEGO Education.
