Annual Banned Books Week Display Contest sponsored by the VLA Intellectual Freedom Committee

Each year, the Intellectual Freedom Committee sponsors a Banned Books Week display contest, to recognize outstanding events and programming during this week. We support access to information in all its wonderful varieties, formats and genres. We want to help libraries across Virginia highlight their collections, including materials which have been challenged.  We will choose winners in three categories: public libraries, academic libraries and school libraries! We encourage you to document your Banned Books Week activities, displays, events, and programs, and to submit your best for this contest.

The IFC will review all submissions and choose the winners, which will be announced online. We encourage (but do not require) a narrative detailing your events. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, October 17 2018.

Submit today!
