February in the Teen Zone


Snowboarding, and its success, lie at the athlete's core and balance ability. Whether you have ever actually snowboarded or not, this is a fun and 'not as easy as it looks' challenge. Visit the Teen Zone during the month iof February, select a country to represent, and test your balance on the skateboard and pool noodle. This is how it will work: Each competitor gets ready by putting one foot on the board. The stopwatch does not start until his/her second foot steps on the board on the opposite side over the screw holes of the skateboard. The country whose athlete stays on the board balanced the longest, without either side of the board touching the floor, wins the medal!

    Sponsored by the New Mexico State Library in cooperation with The Center for the Book at the Library of Congress and Dollar General Literacy Foundation. Letters About Literature 2018 is a writing contest designed to promote reading and thoughtful writing by encouraging young readers to read a book and then write a letter to the author explaining how his or her work shaped their perspective on the world or themselves. This is the sixth year New Mexico State Library has sponsored the competition.

    Readers in grades 4-12 write a personal letter to an author describing their personal reaction to a book, story, or poem. Students may write about works of fiction or nonfiction. The letters are sent to the Library of Congress for initial sorting and then sent to the New Mexico State Library for judging.  New Mexico state judges will select the top letter writers in New Mexico, who then advance to the national competition.

    Please see the Letters About Literature
    participation guidelines with entry form and note that the “How to Enter” and the “How to Submit” instructions have changed, as have the elimination criteria.  Please read the entry form instructions carefully before your students begin reading and writing.




Daniels Scholarship Program 

We are excited to announce the online application for the Daniels Scholarship Program will be open from September 29, 2017 to November 30, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. MST! 

Approximately 230 new Daniels Scholars will be selected for the Class of 2018.


The Daniels Scholarship Program provides a four-year annually renewable college scholarship for high school seniors from Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, or Wyoming who demonstrate character, leadership, and service. The Daniels Scholarship Program offers resources, encouragement, and inspiration far beyond the financial assistance needed to earn a bachelor's degree. Our goal is to help each Daniels Scholar succeed in college and ultimately become independent, successful in a rewarding career, and actively engaged in their community.

Important information about this year's process:


  • The Daniels Scholarship is a "last dollar" scholarship to any two- or four-year accredited nonprofit college or university in the United States. Our scholars are responsible for covering only their Expected Family Contribution or EFC. However, if Daniels Scholars choose to attend one of our 24 partner schools, the Daniels Fund will also cover their EFC. All partner schools are located in our four state region of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. Click here for a list of partner schools.
  • The Daniels Scholarship is not an academic merit scholarship. However, there are minimum SAT or ACT requirements which can be found here.
  • Students do not have to meet Pell eligibility requirements to qualify for the Daniels Scholarship Program, but they must demonstrate financial need. We encourage high school seniors to register on our site and complete our Eligibility Questionnaire which determines a student's financial and general eligibility to apply for the Daniels Scholarship. Click here to see a full list of eligibility requirements.
  • The first step of completing the Eligibility Questionnaire is to complete the 2018/2019 FAFSA at (available starting October 1, 2017) to determine their EFC. Students will use 2016 tax information to complete the 2018/2019 FAFSA.

For full details on the scholarship and to apply, visit our website at, where you will also find answers to frequently asked questionsand additional promotional materials that can be downloaded, including a 20-minute video with detailed information about the program and how to apply.

Thank you for your support and willingness to connect students with this opportunity!
