2016 Student Ambassador Program


Win a free iPAD Mini by showing your support for libraries!

 The North Carolina Library Association is pleased to announce the third annual Student Library Ambassador program. This year we are seeking one student winner from each of North Carolina’s 13 congressional districts. The top two rated entries will win a free iPAD Mini and all 13 student ambassadors will receive a free t-shirt, framed certificate, be profiled on our website, and meet in person with both their national senators and congressperson at their local offices in North Carolina to discuss the importance of libraries.

To enter, all you have to do is show how much you love libraries and what effect it’s had on your life, any way you want—by essay, song, video, poem, interpretive dance, etc.—and submit your entry by mail, fax, or email by April 30, 2016.

 Your submission should include a one minute video introduction (post on YouTube, submit via email, or make part of your video entry), your name, grade, school, telephone, mailing address, and US congressional district you are representing (click here to identify your House of Representative). It also needs to address these three questions:

  1. Why are libraries important to you and your classmates?
  2. How have libraries impacted you personally?
  3. How are libraries important for the future of North Carolina?
