Teen Connection Panel (TCP): Ten teens will be selected to ask authors questions for the audience. You will sit at a table in front of an audience of around 300 people and speak into a microphone to ask your prepared questions. To prepare, you will need to read books by both authors and prepare 5 thoughtful questions to ask both of them.
REFORMA Colorado: Students in grades 6-12 and teens who are homeschooled are eligible to apply. Teens may self-nominate or be nominated by a teacher or librarian. Latina/o students are encouraged to apply for the REFORMA grants.
Each student may only apply for one grant; duplicate applications will result in removal from consideration. Students who have received grants in the past are not eligible.
