2017 Student Library Ambassador Program

The North Carolina Library Association is pleased to announce the fourth annual Student Library Ambassador Program.  This year, we are seeking 1 K-12 student winner from each of North Carolina's 13  congressional districts. The top three rated entries will win a trip to Washington, D.C.  and all 13 student ambassadors will receive a free t-shirt, a framed certificate, be profiled on our website, and meet in person with both their members of congress at their local offices in North Carolina to discuss the importance of libraries. This year, we are also opening it up to college students as well. 

To enter, all you must do is show how much you love libraries and what effect it has had on your life, anyway you want, song, essay, video, poem, interpretive dance, presentation, etc. Submit your entry by mail, fax, or email by January 31, 2018.
