Hello Oregon youth services colleagues,
If you've always wanted to attend an ALA conference but have never done so
before, please read the message below to find out about a $600 stipend
available through the Penguin Random House Young Readers Group Award. There
have been several winners of this award from Oregon in past years.


Apply now to receive a stipend to attend ALA Annual 2020!

ALSC’s Grants Administration Committee is now accepting online applications
for the Penguin Random House Young Readers Group Award.  This award, made
possible by an annual gift from Penguin Young Readers Group and Random
House Children’s books, provides a $600 stipend for up to four children's
librarians to attend their first ALA Annual Conference. The award also
includes an invitation to the Newbery-Caldecott-Legacy banquet.

Each applicant will be judged on the following:


   Involvement in ALSC, as well as any other professional or educational
   association of which the applicant was a member, officer, chairman, etc.;

   New programs or innovations started by the applicants at the library in
   which they work;

   Library experience.

Applicants must be personal members of ALSC, as well as ALA members to
apply. Deadline for submissions is November 1, 2019. For more information
about the award requirements and submitting the online application please
visit the Penguin Random House Young Readers Group Award Web page

Questions? Please do not hesitate to contact me. We look forward to hearing
from you!

All the best,

Ariana Hussain
