The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), has announced the winners of its 2014 Maker Contest.

Over the summer, libraries were encouraged to implement ‘making’ activities into their summer reading and learning programming efforts. At the conclusion of their making programming, libraries were invited to enter YALSA’s Maker Contest. YALSA received a total of 27 entries from across the country, which were vetted by a taskforce of YALSA members.

Jaclyn Anderson from the Madison County Library System in Canton, Mississippi was one of the five winners of the Maker Contest. She offered ArtBot workshops that challenged teens to create robots that could create drawings.

Winners received a prize pack with various STEM and making related tools and resources.



MLA's mission is to provide professional leadership for the development, promotion, and improvement of library and information services and the profession of librarianship in order to enhance learning and ensure access to information for all.
