Need some money? Apply for an OELMA Award/Scholarship!

Are you pursuing your licensure in school library/media? Do you know someone who is? Would $500 help toward tuition? If so- it’s time to nominate yourself, or a friend for one of our two scholarships- The J. Allen Oakum Scholarship, or the OELMA Scholarship.

And- it’s time to recognize an enthusiastic reader in your school who loves to share book titles and reads independently on a volunteer basis.  Nominate your student for a READ ON, OHIO! Award.  Student recipients will be honored at the 2017 OELMA Conference. Click on the Awards/Scholarship tab for more information.

Would you like some extra money to help with your reading program? Then the OELMA/JLG Floyd Dickman Programming Grant is the grant for you! During his lifetime, Floyd Dickman was passionate about children’s literature and reading.  To honor his achievements, Junior Library Guild in collaboration with OELMA created a grant to be awarded to one school library program to help fund programs that inspire children to embrace the joy of reading.  Deadline to apply is April 3, 2017.  Click on the Awards/Scholarship tab for more information about all of these awards.
