*Please excuse duplicate posts.*

The Virginia Hamilton Conference on Multicultural Literature for Youth is
now accepting applications for the Annual Virginia Hamilton and Arnold
Adoff Creative Outreach Grants for Teachers and Librarians.

Each year, we offer two grants up to $1,000 each for projects to develop
new classroom or library programs that raise awareness of multicultural
literature among young people; particularly, but not exclusively, through
the works of Virginia Hamilton.

Each year, we will award one grant to a K-12 teacher and one to a school
library or youth services librarian in a public library.


Eligible applicants must currently work with or plan to work with children
or adolescents in any grade from preschool through high school or in a
public or school library. Applicants must submit an application form, a
professional reference and a proposal detailing the development of a new
classroom or library program that:

   - Promotes awareness of multicultural themes and issues through
   outstanding literature;
   - Illustrates the use of exemplary multicultural literature,
   particularly but not exclusively the works of Virginia Hamilton;
   - Demonstrates effective organization, methods and/or library service;
   - Includes a plan for documenting the development of the program
   throughout the grant period.
