For the first time, the YALS Flume & Isinglass Committee is seeking Teen Book Awards Ambassadors to join our efforts in creating this year’s short lists. Teens must live in NH, be in 7th-11th grade, be enthusiastic readers, and be able to make a commitment through March 2022. Selected Ambassadors would be tasked with reading a portion of nominated titles, rating and reviewing each book, and attending short list meetings in March 2021 (virtual) and March 2022.
For an example of the level of commitment this position would require, the committee would ask each ambassador to read roughly 12 books between mid-January 2021 and mid-March 2021.
In order to be considered, interested teens must complete a short application, and have a librarian or English/Language Arts teacher fill out a recommendation form. Both forms must be submitted by January 4th. All applicants will hear from the committee by January 8th.
