The ALA Public Programs Office is now accepting nominations for the
2011 Sara Jaffarian School Library Program Award for Exemplary
Humanities Programming. School libraries, public or private, that serve
children in any combination of grades K-8 and conducted humanities
programs during the 2009-2010 school year are eligible. Applications and
award guidelines are available at www.ala.org/jaffarianaward. To be
considered, nominations must be received by the ALA  Public Programs
Office by December 15.
The award consists of a $4,000 honorarium and a plaque, to be presented
at the 2011 ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans. In addition, the
winning program will be promoted as a model program for other school
libraries on www.ProgrammingLibrarian.org. To be considered, applicant
libraries must have conducted a humanities program or program series
during the prior school year (2009-2010). The humanities program can be
focused in many subject areas, including but not limited to social
studies, poetry, drama, art, music, language arts, foreign language and
culture. Programs should focus on broadening perspectives and helping
students understand the wider world and their place in it. They should
be initiated and coordinated by the school librarian and exemplify the
role of the library program in advancing the overall educational goals
of the school.
To find inspiration to begin your application, be sure to read this
interview with the 2010 Jaffarian Award winner:

The Sara Jaffarian Award was established in 2006 to recognize and
promote excellence in humanities programming in elementary and middle
school (K-8) libraries. It is presented annually by the ALA Public
Programs Office, in cooperation with the American Association of School
Librarians (AASL), and named for Sara Jaffarian, whose donation to ALA’s
Cultural Communities Fund established the award. Jaffarian, a retired
school librarian and longtime ALA member, spent her career passionately
advocating for school libraries in every school. The Sara Jaffarian
Award is selected annually by a committee comprising members of the ALA
Public and Cultural Programs Advisory Committee (PCPAC) and AASL. For
