Awards and Scholarships
Quality Time Award
The Youth Services Subdivision presents the Quality Time Award to someone who is a positive leader in youth services, who contributes to the library/youth services profession, and who is an overall exemplary professional. Winners will be selected by a review from the YSS Exec Committee and the nominating party will be notified to coordinate the winner’s ability to attend the ILA Annual Conference. The award will be presented at the conference luncheon. Check back in July to make nominations.
