Last year I was named the 2016 School Library Journal’s School Librarian of the Year. It was one of the proudest moments of my teaching career. One of the incredible components of the award was $2,500 to spend at the Scholastic Book Store. I am fortunate to work in a district that believes in and supports my mission as a school librarian. My library is well-funded and properly staffed. Because of this, I wanted to do something different with the Scholastic funds. I’ve decided that I will donate them to five schools in need; each school will be awarded $500.
Do you know a school who’s library could use these funds?
The most democratic way I could come up for distributing these funds is to create a Rafflecopter page. Here’s how it works: if you tweet about the contest and/or leave a comment on the blog, you will receive an ‘entry’ in the raffle. On March 1st the Rafflecopter ‘engine’ will randomly choose five lucky recipients. The more entries you have, the better your chances. So, go ahead and submit an entry on behalf of your school or a deserving school you know about. Click the link below to enter the raffle! Share with as many folks as you can and I can’t wait to see how this turns out! Good luck!
