Maine Association of School Libraries (MASL) believes that recognizing
the support of school administrators in the lives of school libraries
promotes best practices within a school and acknowledges that this vital support is crucial for school library programs to succeed.
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.
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
Email completed nomination form and documentation to: firstname.lastname@example.org *Please do not mail*
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.
