The AASL Awards Ceremony highlights best practices in school librarianship through collaboration, leadership, innovative programming, national involvement, and upholding the principles of the profession. The program is a public acknowledgment and celebration of school librarians who have made a significant contribution and modeled excellence within the profession. Also recognized, the 2017 AASL Best Websites and Best Apps for Teaching and Learning, and a new recognition this year, the 2017 AASL Social Media Superstars.
AASL President Audrey Church will present the final award during the AASL President's Program. The Crystal Apple Award is given at the discretion of the AASL President to an individual or group who has had significant impact on school libraries and students.
The program will conclude with Dr. Scott Beck, Ph.D., head principal at Norman High School (OK), who will speak about how a 21st-century school librarian contributes to student outcomes.
