This award is presented to honour an individual for contributing significantly to the public recognition and appreciation of librarianship. Recipients will receive a $1,000 and a citation of achievement.
It has been established in recognition of CLA past president Dr. Ken Haycock, distinguished educator, administrator and advocate.
This award will be given from time-to-time, not necessarily on an annual basis, and there may be more than one recipient in any one year.
Recipients will have demonstrated exceptional success in enhancing the public recognition and appreciation of librarianship. This may have been accomplished through exceptional practice as a librarian; teaching the profession in formal and informal settings; writing; serving as a mentor or role model; or otherwise raising external appreciation of librarianship. It will not normally be granted to a practitioner for undertaking the usual awareness activity a professional is expected to do; it is intended to recognize exceptional achievement.
Nominations should be in the form of a letter and include; nominee's name, acheivements, and nominator's full name and contact information.
The Award will not be granted in years in which the nominated candidates do not achieve the level of success deemed necessary by the Committee.
Preference will be given to a CLA member; however, non-members will be considered.
