We know not everyone can make it to Midwinter Meeting. As excited as we are to see the many YALSA members attending the Denver meeting in person, we want to make sure that everyone can play along at home, too.

We’ll be blogging and podcasting from Denver right here on this very blog, and you can also see information about what we’re be doing on our Twitter feed. Check in to see highlights from the whole weekend, including the Reaching Diverse Teens preconference, YALSA Mixer & Tech Playground, YALSA Candidates’ Forum (it’s not too late to ask questions),’  and, of course, the Monday morning Youth Media Awards announcements, where you’ll see who won the Alex, Edwards, Morris, Odyssey and Printz awards.

If you want to know who’s winning at the YMAs, you can watch the live broadcast starting at 7:45 a.m. MT. The amount of people who can watch the live feed is limited, so access is on a first-come, first-serve basis. You can also follow the YMA announcements on Twitter to learn the winners in real-time, or keep an eye on this blog, where we’ll be posting the winners.

Coming to Denver? If you’ll be tweeting or uploading photos to Flickr (flickr-ing?), please make sure to tag them with yalsamw09 (add a hash mark — # — before the tag in Twitter) so everyone can easily share in the Midwinter experience. You can read any Twitter posts or items marked with #yalsamw09 at the Twemes page.

And be sure to participate on YALSA’s Facebook page! Let us know what Midwinter events you’re attending, upload photos & video from Midwinter events and start a conversation. Our Facebook fan page is a community — and we need you to join in the fun!
