Are you building something bold?

Are you engaged in integrating

  • 1:1 technology?
  • project-based learning instruction?
  • makerspace learning?

With all that making going on and all the thoughtful tech integration you share in your blogs, webinars and on your sites, my guess is that so many of you are very eligible for SLJ’s Build Something Bold award.

Sponsored by LEGO® Education, the award honors creativity in programming and lesson plans that incorporate hands-on learning and its meaningful infusion in the library or classroom as led by the librarian or media specialist.

The criteria includes:

  • Creativity in space and program design
  • Effectively integrating curricular objectives toward enhancing literacy through hands-on activity
  • Demonstrated student engagement and impact on learning
  • Cost-effectiveness and ease of replication

Feel free to nominate yourself or someone whose work you admire.  To enter, submit a description of up to two pages describing the nominee to with the “name of your school or library” in the subject line.  You may include support materials: photographs, video, links, related blog posts, press coverage, etc. Click Here for Entry and Official Rules.

A winner and two finalists will receive cash awards and be profiled in an upcoming SLJ feature story. The winner will also receive a classroom pack from sponsor LEGO Education.
