BUTTE COUNTY LIBRARY ANNOUNCES TEEN SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITY
Oroville, CA--The Butte County Library is proud to announce the launch of the Teens
Learn and Create Scholarship Program.
Butte County Library seeks high school students to design and implement Makerspace
programming at the Chico Branch. This is a grant funded initiative through California
State Library’s Stronger Together: Out of School Time Grant.
Students ages 14-19 are invited to apply and each will be awarded a scholarship of
$1500 upon successful completion of the program. Up to five students will be selected.
Successful completion of the scholarship program requires participants to commit to
spending eight hours per week in the library from February 2023 through April 2023,
where they will learn about library operations and programs, attend two 1-hour weekly
personal development meetings, and learn to create Makerspace programing.
Participants are expected to be flexible, self-motivated, and open to constructive
criticism. Teens with good time management skills, a love of technology, and an interest
in learning and designing creative programming for a younger audience are encouraged
to apply! Attention to detail is a big plus!
