The SLA Inspiration Award is made annually to the school library space that shows inspiration, innovation, creativity and resourcefulness in its library design and in use, either through creative use of specific products or promotions. What matters is not how big the school library space is, but what it has achieved with the available resources and the challenges it faces.
The award is open to any school library space with no requirement to belong to the School Library Association or to have used DEMCO/Gresswell or LFC products. Nominated schools will be judged initially from the submitted nomination online form and supporting photographs/video to create a shortlist of possible winners. Guidance notes are available on how to prepare an effective nomination. Members of the independent judging panel, will make the final decisions as to the winning entry, and may then visit the school library spaces on the short list.
If you have rebuilt or refurbished your school library within the last year, please do consider submitting a nomination by16 March 2015.
The winners will be announced at the School Libraries Celebration Day ceremony in Autumn 2015.
Nominations for the Inspiration Award should be submitted online at the websites below (guidance notes are also available there on how to prepare an effective nomination):
