This is the section where we hard working teen librarians tell you what we liked and why you might like it. Check out what's new and what might be new to you.
If you're an artist or inventor, check out the 2014 Doodle 4 Google Competition! The page states that "one talented young artist will see his or her artwork on the Google homepage and receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for his or her school." Check out the rules and entry form here!
Summer Reading Program is still a few months away, but if you're wanting a reading challenge sooner than that, check this out: the YALSA 2014 Hub Reading Challenge has arrived! Check out the list--it's comprised of the 2014 award winners & lists for awards such as the Printz Award, the Alex Award, the William C. Morris Award, and more. Anyone can join this challenge, and those who complete it are entered in a drawing to win a bunch of YA books and goodies. Participants have to read 25 of the titles on the list to complete the challenge--how many books can you read before time is up? (Leah is going the distance, and challenging herself to read the whole list!!)
Did you know there's a popular choice award in Oklahoma for young adult books? YOU can vote on which book should win! Every year, the Oklahoma Library Association puts out a list of nominated titles so that teens can vote on which title should win the award. The 2014 High School Sequoyah Award will be awarded in April 2014. All you have to do to vote is read at least three titles from the list, then select your pick on the voting ballot that you can pick up in your school or library starting in March! But why stop at three books? Why not read all 15? Challenge your friends to read as many as they can, and then you can all vote for your favorite! Quiz your librarians on how many they've read! (I've read 8 so far...) Here's a handy list you can use to request the books from your library's catalog: http://bit.ly/1gXUDc7
