Apply by February 1, 2011 to enter YALSA’s Thinking Big About Advocacy Contest

The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) of the American Libraries Association (ALA) is now accepting applications for the Thinking Big About Advocacy Contest.  Complete contest rules and electronic applications are available at http://www.ala.org/yalsa/awards&grants, and will be accepted through February 1, 2011. Funding was provided for this contest by the Friends of YALSA.

The Thinking Big About Advocacy Contest is being implemented as part of YALSA president Kim Patton’s “Thinking Big” theme. It is designed to recognize the advocacy work performed by YALSA members at public or secondary school libraries (middle, junior high, or high school), and empower others to follow their lead.

Following the application process, one first place winner will receive $500.00 to use towards their YA programs, and four runners up will receive $100.00 to use toward their YA programs.

If you  are a YALSA member who has organized a campaign to bring a new service or program for YAs to your library, hosted an event to raise public awareness about the need for YA Librarians or YA Spaces in your library, or has found some creative way to share your message with the community, download a contest application and tell us about it!
