NorthWest Kansas Library System is proud to offer a competitive grant to help fund two school libraries wishing to attend the William Allen White Award Ceremony in Emporia, Kansas. Each grant will be worth $600, and must be used for travel costs and other costs associated with attending the William Allen White Award Ceremony.
Grant applications must be submitted by May 14th, of each year. Applicants will be informed of the status of their application by the end of May. Grant Funds will be dispersed on the second Wednesday of June.
Schools that are awarded grants, will submit, as a report, a compilation of student writings about their experiences at the William Allen White Award Celebration and about the trip in general. These writings will be used in the NWKLS Vertical Files and Online, and must be submitted 30 days after the Award Ceremony.
