OELMA Awards Season – 2019

Spring is in the air – and it’s time to get ready for Awards Season! The Grammy Awards, the Academy Awards – and the OELMA Awards! A trifecta of opportunities for you to nominate yourself or someone you know for one of the OELMA Awards.

Do you know an Ohio school librarian or Ohio educator who demonstrates support for the American Library Association’s principles of intellectual freedom? In 2018, Lori Lee (Zanesville City School District) nominated Amy Price (Princeton City School District) for this award for Amy’s leadership in bringing the “Driving Literacy Home,” a mobile book unit, to Princeton children and youth during the summer months.

Do you know an OELMA school librarian who has an exemplary school library program? Who collaborates with classroom teachers? Who implements technology-integrated instruction? If you do, then nominate her or him for the Outstanding School Librarian Award sponsored by Follett School Solutions.

READ On! Ohio is a youth award. Since its inception in 2016, OELMA has honored youth across the state for their love of reading and enthusiasm for the school library. Each recipient receives a certificate and gift card to Barnes and Noble at the OELMA Annual Conference. This year the deadline is April 6, 2019. Recipients must be enrolled in K-12 during the 2019-20 school year. #OELMAwards19
