YALSA will distribute grants of $1,000 each to encourage outstanding Teen Tech Week activities by providing financial assistance, while recognizing YALSA members for excellent library services for and with teens, especially those teens that lack access to up to date technology. Innovative proposals that help teens gain skills in using digital media, whether to help with school work, explore personal interests or prepare for careers are encouraged.
Funds may be used to purchase digital media, enhance the library's collection or support a particular program activity. Funds may not be used for salaries or for food/beverages.
The application deadline is January 1, 2017. Grant recipients will be announced the week of January 23, 2017.
The grant is open to both public and school libraries.
