Trying to get to that professional conference? We can help!

Calling all Medical Librarians and Health Literacy Advocates!

Please join the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Southeastern/Atlantic Region in celebrating National Medical Librarians and National Health Literacy Month by sharing your contest submission starting… now!

What Do I Have to Do?

Choose one of October’s National Days for inspiration and either write an article, create an image, or shoot a short video in celebration of your day of choice and submit it online.

Both silly and serious submissions are encouraged. Share your medical librarian perspective, display your health literacy expertise, or choose to show an entirely different side of yourself!

What Do I Get?

Participants will be entered into a lottery to receive a free conference registration* of their choice!

You Mean I Get to Have Fun and Possibly Win a Prize?!

Correctamundo! When you’re ready, please submit your creation HERE.


  • Article: DOCX  (between 500 and 750 words)
  • Art: JPG, PNG or GIF  (size limit – up to 15MB)
  • Video: MOV or MP4  (up to 1 minute in length)

What’s the Deadline to Submit?

Extended! Monday, September 30th is ideal but we’ll accept submissions through October 28th.

I’m UBER creative – Can I submit more than once?

Can’t decide between Knock-Knock Joke Day and I Love Yarn Day? No problem! Each person can submit up to three times.
