Scholarship Funds Available
Is there a professional conference that you’ve been dying to go to but the cost is prohibitive? Consider applying for a scholarship from OYAN. Most people use this fund to help defray the cost of ALA or YALSA conferences. But it can be used for any local, state, regional, or national conference.

All you need to do is fill out a short application and write a report within three months of attendance. Just check out the amazing things happening at ALA Midwinter in Atlanta GA. This fund is open to any OYAN member in good standing.

Announcements
The Mock Printz Award Workshop will be Saturday January 21st at the Central branch of the Multnomah County Library and is currently open for registration. Check out our earlier post for details and Goodreads for the reading list.

The OYAN Fall workshop, which was held immediately before the fall membership meeting on Friday, October 21st, was titled Outcome-Based Evaluation: Putting Teen Programs on a Level Playing Field with Children’s Programs.
