The 2011 Teen Tech Week Mini Grants will provide 10 libraries in need with funds to use technology in an innovative way to promote teen reading. Recipients will receive $450 toward the purchase of resources to implement a teen reading effort during TTW that utilizes technology as well as $50 worth of official Teen Tech Week promotional materials.
The mini-grants are funded by the Margaret A. Edwards Trust, an official Teen Tech Week Promotional Partner, and administered by YALSA.
