Looking For a Few Good Readers!
Join the 2017 CLEL Bell Award Selection Committee!
For the past three years the CLEL Bell Award has showcased newly published picture books that model and support the five early literacy practices (Read, Write, Talk, Sing, and Play) creating activity sheets and resources for libraries, families, and early childhood professionals. This award continues to gain recognition and we are looking forward to another great year. But we can't do it without you!
We are now accepting applications for the 2017 CLEL Bell Award Selection Committee. Committee members will serve from April 2016-February 2017. This year we are asking committee members to commit to two in person meetings on April 30th and December 10th, 2016, as well as monthly virtual meetings. Please review the full list of requirements if you are interested in applying.
This is an exciting opportunity for anyone interested in participating in the state and national library communities or joining a CAL or ALA committee, this is a great first step! You will build your professional network and gain a wealth of early literacy experiences, all while building your resume!
This year the selection committee will be chaired by Melody Garcia and Rachel Hartman. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
