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 www.ala.org/yalsa/awards&grants
(
https://mail.slcolibrary.org/exchweb/bin/redir.asp?URL=http://www.ala.org/yalsa/awards%26grants
), 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!
