ImagineIF’s ‘Making Montana’ wins state Program of the Year Award
ImagineIF Libraries’ “Making Montana” collaborative project was selected as winner of Montana Library Association’s Program of the Year Award 2020.
Making Montana is a free, two-day event designed to inspire the next generation of innovators and highlight 21st century skills. Last year’s event took place Feb. 28 and 29 at the Flathead County Fairgrounds. The celebration of invention and creativity is a result of a collaboration between ImagineIF Libraries, Flathead Valley Community College, Kalispell Chamber of Commerce, Job Service Kalispell and Montana West Economic Development.
The Program of the Year Award is conferred on a project, program or innovation run by a Montana library, library system, or library network that is not a K-12 school library, which demonstrates excellence. The award is based on activities or accomplishments executed in the previous year (Jan. 1-Dec. 31, 2020) and fosters relationships and networking either within a given community or across multiple communities.
