Teen Board Application October 2012 is introducing a new way for readers to interact with us ---

The Teen Board!

We are looking for 20-25 teens between the ages of 13 and 18 years old who are passionate about books and are committed to contributing to the site to be a part of our new Teen Board. We value our readers’ views and read your emails faithfully as well as Word of Mouth to get your feedback on books and authors. Now, we are looking for a select group of teens who will be asked to participate on a more formal basis. Opportunities will include contributing reviews, writing blog posts, sharing ideas for the site, giving feedback on features we have on the site and scouting trends in your own community. We want a group of diverse teens around the country to be able to weigh in on YA lit and share their opinions on it.

Because we are looking for teens who can actively participate on the Teen Board, it is critical that you ensure that you have enough time to focus and give at least a six-month commitment to being on the Teen Board. In addition to offering you a Contributor profile on the site, we will send you a certificate of proof of your involvement on the Teen Board.  (That would be something nice to include with your college applications, wouldn’t it?)  

Applications are due at 11:59PM on October 31st  to apply to be on the Teen Board from January 2013 until June 2013. * If you do not have the time to be on this board for this session, look out in March for a July-December 2013 Teen Board application. At that point, there will be an opportunity for members of the board to renew their positions.

We will review the applications by Friday, November 10th and begin the second part of the application process where you may be called for an interview and we will also request a recommendation from a teacher, a parent or someone else who knows you well. If you are selected, you will also be required to turn in a consent form completed by a parent or guardian if you are under 18.
