Help a new librarian or library student attend their first ALA Annual Conference by entering him or her to win The 2nd Annual Kate McClelland and Kathy Krasniewicz Memorial Scholarship.
In January 2009, our community lost two very dear friends, Kate McClelland and Kathy Krasniewicz.
We are proud to honor their memory and pay tribute to their distinguished careers. Both had a special gift for mentoring young librarians and this scholarship celebrates that.
ALA MEMBERS: In 500 words or less, tell us about a new librarian or library student who has never attended an ALA Annual Conference, and in whom you see great devotion to the library community and promise in the field. Tell us how he/she would benefit from attending the ALA Annual Conference. The new librarian/library student could win a trip to attend the 2011 ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans, LA!
Please click here for an entry form.
Prize includes, but is not limited to, travel to/from New Orleans, LA hotel, conference registration, and ticket to the Newbery Caldecott banquet.
