Inaugural GALILEO Ambassador Award

Nomination period extended until May 2, 2022.

This year, GALILEO will start a new honor: the GALILEO Ambassador Award.

It is a recognition program built to honor educators, librarians, or library staff across the state who go the extra mile to advocate for GALILEO and pursue lifelong learning opportunities in their schools, universities, or communities. For the inaugural year, the GALILEO Ambassador Award will be open to individuals representing public or private K-12 schools.

What is a GALILEO ambassador? These individuals help attract new virtual library users, build dynamic educational lessons incorporating GALILEO, promote library programs that integrate GALILEO, share content on social media that highlight classroom use, and discover new ways to highlight the resources provided by GALILEO, while embodying the GALILEO vision to facilitate lifelong learning for all Georgians.

Each year, at the GALILEO Annual Conference, a single individual or library will be recognized with an award. The 2022 nomination period has been extended until May 2.
