Giant Step Award to Recognize Achievements of School and Public Libraries
Deadline: February 15, 2006
Thomson Gale (<a href="http://www.gale.com/">http://www.gale.com/</a>) and School Library Journal (<a href="http://www.schoollibraryjournal.com/">http://www.schoollibraryjournal.com/</a>) developed the annual Giant Step Award program to recognize outstanding school and public libraries that have made significant improvement or created new initiatives in programs and services that greatly impact student learning and development, or that enrich services in both the school and the community. The award seeks to recognize programs that, over the past three years, have made a real difference in their institution.
Through the program, Thomson Gale will distribute $10,000 in cash prizes. In addition, the winning library or libraries will be honored at a gala celebration at the American Library Association (<a href="http://www.ala.org/">http://www.ala.org/</a>) Annual Conference and will receive a cover story in the June issue of School Library Journal.
U.S. and Canadian school library media centers and youth services departments in U.S. and Canadian public libraries that partner with local schools are eligible to apply.
For complete program guidelines and an application form, see the Gale Schools Web site.
