Calling All Lit Lovers!

Want to take part in making Wisconsin literary history? 
The Youth Service Section of the Wisconsin Library Association is looking for a person to serve a two-year term on the 2013 Children’s Book Award Committee.   If selected, you will be one of seven individuals who read and discuss books written for children and teens by authors and illustrators with a Wisconsin connection. 
This notable committee chooses the recipient of the Elizabeth Burr/Worzalla Award and annually selects up to ten books to receive Outstanding Achievement recognition.  To find out more about this committee, visit the WLA Children's Book Award website.
Requirements for the committee work:
·         Participate in book discussions
·         Be familiar with recent youth literature
·         Be a member of WLA/YSS
·         Work cooperatively, listen well and express opinions
·         Attend committee meetings 

Please note that WLA does not reimburse mileage any longer and the three meetings must be held in person in Madison.

To submit your name, please copy the form into a Word document, fill it out and submit it to Linda, this year's YSS Chair. Your application will be kept on file if you aren't contacted about joining this year.

If you have filled out an informal application in the past, that paperwork is currently on file. The YSS Chair and the Burr/Worzalla Chair will make the decision by the end of the calendar year.
