We are happy to announce that nominations are being accepted for the 2022 ALA Student Chapter of the Year Award, presented by the New Members Round Table.
The deadline to apply is March 4, 2022.
Has your chapter had an outstanding year?
Has membership in your chapter increased?
Did your chapter develop and provide opportunities for members to participate in interesting and rewarding activities during Covid?
Do you have outstanding officers or members who should be recognized nationally?
If you answered YES, then you should apply to be the 2022 NMRT Student Chapter of the Year!
The purpose of the award is to recognize a chapter’s outstanding contributions to the American Library Association, their school, and the profession. The intent of the award is to increase student involvement in ALA through student chapters, and to recognize future leaders in the profession.
The Student Chapter winner will receive $1,000 to help defray travel expenses to ALA Annual. The winning chapter and the runner up will each receive a certificate. Both will be recognized at the NMRT Student Reception at the 2022 ALA Annual Conference.
