The MASL School Administrator Award seeks to honor administrators who, through individual leadership and sustained effort, have made worthy contributions to the operations of effective school library media services within the educational program. The award is also intended to recognize the responsible and influential role of the school administrator in developing successful school library media programs, and to stimulate planning, implementation and support of school library media services.
The award includes a plaque and a cash donation to the recipient's school library media program, made in the name of the recipient. The award is presented annually at both the recipient's school/district and at an appropriate MASL conference or event.
Deadline for nominations: February 15th
Procedure for Nomination:
Complete the nomination form found below and return to MASL:
Maine Association of School Libraries
c/o Maine State Library
64 State House Station
Augusta, ME 04333
When an application is received, the MASL office will send an acknowledging email to confirm receipt of the application.
Once the deadline to receive nominations has passed all nominations received will be reviewed and a winner selected. All submitters will be notified of the results by mail.
The submitter of the winning application will then be contacted to discuss arrangements for an on-site presentation of the award which will include school and district officials, staff, faculty and students whenever possible.
The award winner will also be accorded honors at the next significant MASL event.
Although the award is presented annually and the major emphasis is for contributions made during the previous school year, earlier and continuing activities should be included in the recommendations and will be considered as part of the nomination.
MASL also reserves the right to forgo presenting the MASL Administrator Award in years when there are no candidates or when the MASL Board determines that no candidate submission meets the requirements of the MASL Administrator Award.
