The OBOB Webpage has both the OBOB School Registration page for 2010-2011 and OBOB Grant Application page for 2010-2011.
The deadline for applying for the grant is April 30th, 2010. 

Go to: http://oboblsta.pbworks.com/ to register your school and/or apply for the 2010-2011 grant.

In regards to the OBOB School Registration: 
As OBOB transitions from the LSTA grant funding that helped establish this successful statewide program in 2007, new grants and partnerships are being pursued. To keep the program running, instituting a minimal participation fee has become necessary. As additional funding is secured we will be able to provide copies of OBOB books to registered schools on a competitive needs basis. There will be a participation charge of $25 for each school with a current OASL member working at that school. There will be a participation charge of $50 for each school without a current OASL, Oregon Association of School Libraries, member working at that school. The $25 or $50 registration fee permits participation in as many grade level divisions as appropriate for that school.  

The OBOB 2010-2011 Grant will includefive copies of 12 of the 16 titles in the specific division your school applies for which means a total of 60 books for your school.  We will alert grant recipients on May 5th.  For more details, please read the grant application posted on the OBOB website.

For more information, please read the details on the OBOB School Registration page and additionally go to: http://www.oasl.info/ for information on OASL. 

Thank you for your support,
Debbie Alvarez, OBOB Chair
