This year we are actively recruiting biligual Spanish/English librarians and educators to gain experience serving on the CLEL Bell Awards committee. Our goal is to lainch the Spanish CLEL Bell Award for the 2025 year with these members. To be part of the CLEL Bell Awards committeee at any time is an exciting opportunity, but to serve on the inaugural Spanish CLEL Bell Award would hold an especially high honor. We hope to bring excellence in early literacy to more audiences and demographics.
