Each year,Arts Coop awards two prizes of $1000, one to a MAS student and one to a MLIS student who excelled in their co-op work term(s) in the preceding year. A sub-committee of the Arts Co-op Advisory Committee—composed of SLAIS employer representatives, SLAIS Co-op alumni, and co-op staff—adjudicated the awards. The awards were made possible with funding donated by the Members of the former Central Vancouver Librarians’ Group (CVLG).
