The Braverman Prize is an award given each year by the Progressive Librarians Guild (PLG) for the best graduate student essay about some aspect of the social responsibilities of librarians, libraries, or librarianship. The 2015 Braverman Prize includes a $500 stipend for travel expenses to the ALA Annual Conference in San Francisco, CA, and publication of the winning essay in the Summer 2015 issue of Progressive Librarian. Our award announcements recognize both the winner and their LIS program.
The call for submissions is available at http://connect.ala.org/node/236810.
The contest offers an excellent opportunity for socially-minded, politically conscious LIS students to make a mark in the field by getting published and interacting with librarians and other library students.
