Media specialists, teachers, and principals in public and private K–12 schools are invited to submit their collaboration success stories for an opportunity to win the 2013 Gale/LMC TEAMS Award which recognizes the critical collaboration of teachers and librarians to “promote learning and achievement.” The award is sponsored by Gale and Library Media Connection magazine. The collaboration could have taken place in the 2011–12 or 2012–13 school year. The judging, done by a panel of education professionals and Gale staff, will evaluate the entries based on demonstrated collaboration, effective techniques that positively impact student learning and achievement, support from school leadership, and replicability. Be sure to check out the award’s website for complete information.

Three winners will receive $2,500, Gale products, a one-year subscription to Library Media Connection, and Educator’s Professional Bookshelf from Linworth Publishing.

All entries must be submitted by July 1. Winners will be announced in November 2013 at the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) annual conference in Hartford, CT.
