TeenTech and IL Group launch Information Literacy Award

The CILIP Information Literacy Group, in partnership with the TeenTech initiative, has announced a new award for 11-16 year olds that will recognise excellence in information literacy. The "Research and Information Literacy Award will celebrate how well young people can dispel the ‘Google Generation’ myth and show that they can be truly information literate researchers as they explore their ideas to make life better, simpler or easier. ... Winners of the new award will have demonstrated their ability to search intelligently across a range of resources, including search engines like Google, make excellent judgements about the information they have found, and put it to ethical use in their project."
