The New Hampshire School Library Media Association is pleased to announce that we are now accepting nominations for the 2012 awards and for the annual scholarship. In order to promote our profession and the wonderful work that you do, we are publicizing the nomination process with letters to administrators and with postings on several statewide listservs. We would also like to encourage our membership to take an active role in the nomination process this year.
On January 23rd, a letter was mailed to your school administration requesting nominations for the annual NHSLMA Outstanding Library Media Specialist, Paraprofessional, Intellectual Freedom, and Partnership Awards.
In conjunction with administration nominations, we are encouraging our membership to submit award nominations and scholarship applications. Please consider nominating a colleague for the Outstanding Library Media Specialist, Paraprofessional, or Intellectual Freedom Award. In an effort to celebrate and foster the collaborative efforts that many of you undertake, we are asking our membership to consider self-nominations for the Partnership Award.
In an effort to advance our profession, NHSLMA awards annual scholarship/s for those seeking financial assistance for graduate work, undergraduate work, or continuing education. The criteria for application is listed on the scholarship form found at http://nhslma.org/about-2/awards/.
