The 2015 TEAMS Award is open to K-12 educators and library media specialists
The contest is open to K-12 public and private schools in the U.S. and Canada. Called the 2015 TEAMS Award – Teachers and Media Specialists Influencing Student Achievement, it recognizes teacher-media specialist teams in elementary, middle, and high school settings for their critical collaboration to promote learning and achievement.
Past efforts that have been recognized include: a collaborative project involving the art, music, and physical education departments; a project-based learning initiative in which students created their own civilizations while simultaneously learning about ancient civilizations; and a student-generated interactive etextbook on the First World War.
The three winning teams will each receive a cash award, Gale products, a one-year subscription to Library Media Connection and the Educator’s Professional Bookshelf from Linworth Publishing/Libraries Unlimited. In addition, the winners will be featured in a Library Media Connection article. Awards will be presented at a special reception held in conjunction with the American Association of School Librarians annual conference in November.
The deadline is June 30. Additional information is available online.
