YALSA Outstanding Achievement Award
  • This award of $2,000 is funded by ABC-CLIO/Greenwood and is given out every other year (applications are accepted during odd years only). If a suitable candidate is not found, the jury will remain active and present an award the following year.

    All persons being nominated must be current personal members of ALA/YALSA at the time the application is submitted to be eligible. The nominator does not need to be a member of ALA or YALSA unless they are nominating themselves.

    Nominations must be submitted online by December 1 in odd-numbered years.

    An award jury will evaluate each nominee based on outstanding contribution(s), innovative ideas and breadth of influence.
