National Partner

YALSA's is pleased to work with the Best Buy Children's Foundation as the National Partner for Teen Tech Week 2014.  Best Buy and the Best Buy Children’s Foundation annu­ally donate up to 1.5% of pre-tax earn­ings to non­profit orga­ni­za­tions across the United States. Best Buy believes that access to tech­nol­ogy equals access to oppor­tu­nity. To that end, the company sup­ports com­mu­nity orga­ni­za­tions that pro­vide teens access to oppor­tu­ni­ties to develop 21st cen­tury skills that tech­nol­ogy can pro­vide; fuel­ing the next gen­er­a­tion of inno­va­tors.

From now through Jan. 1, 2014, YALSA members can apply for one of ten TTW Mini Grants worth $1,000 each via this online form.  Funding is generously provided by Best Buy.  Extend Teen Tech Week beyond March by applying to be the host of a two day Tech Camp with Best Buy's Geek Squad Academy!  Learn more, or apply by Feb. 28th, 2014 at http://academy.geeksquad.com/proposal

Encourage teens to take advantage of all the great digital tools offered through the library to become content creators! #TTW18
