Enter the 2016 John Cotton Dana Contest!

News from the JCD Committee: 

The John Cotton Dana Library Public Relations Awards site is open for entries!  

From the award's website

"The John Cotton Dana Award, provided in conjunction with the H.W. Wilson Foundation, the American Library Association, and EBSCO, honors outstanding library public relations, whether a summer reading program, a year-long centennial celebration, fundraising for a new college library, an awareness campaign or an innovative partnership in the community."

"So if you have a well-planned, well-implemented, and well-evaluated initiative that took place in 2015 or the 2014-2015 academic year, please consider entering to win one of eight $10,000 awards! This is a no-strings-attached cash award (not a grant), and the web-based entry process is a piece of cake compared with the previous entry process," according to the organizers. 

The website will be open for entries through March 21, 2016. So don't delay!
