Here’s how to throw your hat in the ring:

  1. Show us what makes you a perfect fit for R-Squared.

    Create your most engaging content that shows us how you are a valuable asset to R-Squared – The Risk and Reward Conference and how your attendance will affect your library and community. We’d love to hear from people in your community about how you’re going to wow us. Create a video, website, animation, illustration, blog – anything that can be linked to with a single URL. We don’t have a lot of caveats, but you must be involved in libraries in some capacity.

    Entries will be judged on the following criteria:

    • Creativity
    • Passion
    • Endorsements from your community
    • Concrete examples of how you are a change agent
  2. Submit the form before 11:59 PM MT on June 3, 2012 (Currently closed).
  3. Be willing to assist with one of the R-Squared Experiences at the conference.
