Free Scholarships to WI Youth Librarians
UW-Madison SLIS is sponsoring an amazing national conference for youth library managers and staff in March 2017 called Power Up: A Conference in Leadership for Youth Services Managers and Staff. The conference features over 20 speakers both from our state and throughout the country that address many issues related to both leadership and management for staff at all levels of their career.
Registration has just opened and so has a great opportunity for WI based youth staff. There are 10 complimentary registrations being offered only to WI librarians and staff currently working in WI. Meredith Lowe of UW-Madison SLIS CE shares the scoop:
"I’m very excited to tell you that we are offering 10 conference scholarship awards this year! The winners will receive a complimentary registration to the Power Up conference. This is open only to librarians and staff currently working in Wisconsin libraries (public or school). Applications are welcome from librarians and staff at all levels and with any type of educational background. They just have to be working in Wisconsin.
Here’s the info: https://slis.wisc.edu/
Applications are due on December 30."
This is indeed an extraordinary opportunity for 10 lucky WI youth staff! Will you be one?
