I hadn’t heard about before Stevie Kuenn sent this the info to me, so I thought some of you may not have either. The folks at YALSA are giving out 20 grants of $450 plus $50 in Teen Tech Week products for a library to celebrate Teen Tech Week:
Have a great idea for Teen Tech Week, but don’t quite have the cash to pull it off? Well, you’re in luck: Thanks to our 2008 Corporate Sponsor Dungeons & Dragons, you could win one of twenty mini grants for your celebration! Mini grants of $450 and $50 worth of Teen Tech Week products are available to YALSA members who plan to offer unique, engaging programming activites, services or resources to celebrate Teen Tech Week in their community. Download the official rules and submit the application form and your proposal to the YALSA office at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 7, 2008.
You have to enter quickly as the deadline is this coming Monday, but it seems like a great opportunity for those with ideas for Teen Tech Week that are bigger than your library’s budget.
