Call for Microfunding Proposals: Awesome Ideas Pitch for Libraries at ALA Midwinter (Deadline Dec. 15)

(via Robin Champieux, Oregon Health and Science University)

The Awesome Foundation Libraries Chapter is hosting its first ever Awesome Ideas Pitch for Libraries during the 2018 ALA Midwinter Conference in Denver on Saturday, February 10th, from 4:30 to 6:30 PM. We’re looking for great ideas for small projects that could impact your community, demonstrate a new idea, or improve a tool or service. We’ll choose roughly 8 participants to share their ideas with the ALA community and the judges, along with the audience, will choose their favorite. The winner will walk out of the pitch event with $1000.

To be considered for the Midwinter event, submit a Pitch Proposal by Friday, December 15th, 2017. To help support this event and future awesome projects by being a trustee or sponsor, please visit: http://www.awesomefoundation.org/en/chapters/libraries.
