Outstanding Teacher Librarian of the Year
Do you know an Outstanding Teacher-Librarian? If so, consider nominating that professional for the annual WLMA Outstanding Teacher-Librarian Award. To be considered for this award, candidates must be current WLMA members, hold a valid Washington teaching certificate, have a Learning Resource endorsement and/or Master of Library Science degree or equivalent, and be currently in a school library position.
Nominations may be made by any member of the school community and remain active for two years from the nominations. The nomination letter is a maximum of two pages, and the supportive letter(s) are a maximum of two, written by someone other than an administrator. The building level principal or school district administrator (superintendent, curriculum director, etc.) for this nominee is also asked to supply the committee with a brief letter supporting the nomination. So there can be a total of one nomination letter, one administrative letter supporting the nomination and up to two other supportive letters.
In the letters, include information about the following if possible:
This award is for a plaque, recognition at the annual WLMA business luncheon, and a check for $500. It is a way to celebrate the great work that is on going in Washington by WLMA members.
The nominating and supportive letters need to be sent no later than July 1 to:
