Do you do something great with kids and/or teens? (The correct answer is yes, yes I do!) Would you like to share it in a low-key way at OLA/WLA? You could do a poster session - this would be an especially great thing to try if you've never done a conference presentation before or if you submitted something that didn't get accepted this year - Good things to share could be:

*         Teen Parent group outreach (I'm looking at you, Ledding! But others do this too, please consider highlighting this critically important work you are doing!)

*         Bingo Card Programming - so many of you do this in summer reading but also in other creative ways, this would be an awesome poster!

*         Intern Opportunities - so many of you use teens or college students for summer reading interns and this would be such an awesome highlight for building job skills and expanding opportunities for you and for community - win-win!

If you're interested in doing a poster session but aren't sure what you have to offer, CALL ME AND I WILL TALK YOU INTO IT. See below for the google form to propose a poster.

Happy Thursday,

Subject: [Libs-Or] Call for Spotlight on Success/Poster Session Proposals for 2019 OLA-WLA Annual Conference - deadline March 22, 2019

*apologies for cross-posting*

The 2019 OLA-WLA Conference<https://www.wla.org/2019-ola-wla-conference> in Vancouver, WA (April 17-20) is only a few weeks away!

But, while the regular program schedule<https://www.wla.org/2019-ola-wla-conference-sessions> has already been finalized, there's another way you can become part of the educational lineup: Share some of your best ideas, work, and design skills by presenting a poster on any topic relevant to libraries and librarianship!

Known as "Spotlight on Success" to WLA members and "Poster Sessions" to OLA members, the conference committee is pleased to announce the "Call for Proposals" is now open for this special feature.

Accepted posters will be assigned a specific day (Thursday, Friday, or Saturday), during which there will be a one-hour poster session for attendees to browse the posters and speak with the poster presenters about their topics.

  *   The submission form is live here: https://goo.gl/forms/kwJ6CYfph5UJ9O3H3
  *   Deadline: March 22, 2019. (Yes, a quick turnaround time, but we know you can do it!)
  *   Applicants will be notified no later than Tuesday, March 26.
  *   For any questions about poster session presentations and submissions, contact the Conference Committee Program Coordinators Lacey Legel (lacey.legel at gmail.com<mailto:lacey.legel at gmail.com>) or Mark Pond (mpond at sponkanelibrary.org<mailto:mpond at sponkanelibrary.org>), or WLA Administration (info at wla.org<mailto:info at wla.org>).

We look forward to reading your poster proposals!
