On behalf of Jo Ann Perry, AASL Representative:
“AASL Thinkfinity Zmuda Challenge” instructions
Introduced at the AASL President’s Program during the ALA 2010 Annual Conference, Thinkfinity.org is offering two $5,000 incentive awards for the two most innovative ideas on how school librarians can help students acquire 21st-Century Skills. Thinkfinity.org asks school librarians to post their ideas as a reply to the Thinkfinity Community AASL Thinkfinity Zmuda Challenge discussion by July 15, 2010. After that time, AASL leadership and Allison Zmuda will select the two winning ideas.
To enter the challenge:
- Go to Thinkfinity.org and select “Visit our Community” at the top of the page
- Register for the community
- Submit your idea to the “AASL Thinkfinity Zmuda Challenge” discussion
The winners must each complete a grant application before receiving the $5,000 award. Note that winners are not asked to implement their idea with the $5,000; instead, the incentive can be used to acquire resources for their school or school library.
Questions? Post them to the discussion page.
