This year, NYCSLA is proud to offer two awards for members and their schools: the NYCSLA Fellowship award for members and the NYCSLA Administrator Award for principals. The application deadline is Friday, April 27, 2012.
NYCSLA Fellowship Award
This $300 Fellowship Award is awarded to a NYCSLA member to attend a national, state or regional conference. NYCSLA fellows are chosen on the basis of three criteria: (1) involvement and leadership in the field of school libraries, including professional accomplishments, (2) quality of your virtual library presence, and (3) willingness to share your conference experience with colleagues. NYCSLA board members are ineligible.
NYCSLA Administrator Award
The Award recognizes an administrator who has been responsible for the improvement of the School Library Media Program in a New York City school during the past two to five years. The winner receives a plaque and online recognition in the form of a press release and blog post acknowledging his/her support of the School Library Media Program. You must be a NYCSLA member to apply. NYCSLA board members are not eligible to apply.
All current NYCSLA members are eligible, so apply today! (Not sure if your membership is current? Email firstname.lastname@example.org to check or come to our meeting on March 22 at Sunset Park High School to sign up.)
