The purpose of this award is to recognize annually a school library media center’s achievement in planning and implementing an innovative or creative event or service which has made a measurable positive impact on its users. The award encourages innovation by asking applicants to highlight the way the library used all of its resources (which may include staff, administration, faculty, volunteers, and the community) to make this a successful event or service. This award is not meant to recognize an overall library program but a specific event or service that adds to the success of the overall library program. The event may be a one-time, one-day occurrence, or it may take an extended time to complete.
1. The librarian/media specialist from the nominated school library media center should be a current AISLE member.
2. School library media centers of any size in Illinois are eligible for the award.
The recipient will be selected by the AISLE Awards Committee. If a suitable recipient is not found, the award will not be given that year.
