Literacy and Service Recognition Award for Students

IRA’s Literacy and Social Responsibility Special Interest Group (L-SR SIG) is pleased to announce a new Literacy and Service Recognition Award -- thanks to Alma Flor Ada and Isabel Campoy for generously providing seed funds.

What makes this award unusual is that recipients are students (K-16+) nominated by teachers and/or librarians to be honored for exemplary community service that relates to the purposes of the L-SR SIG:

To study, understand, and promote high-quality programs which foster community service, participatory citizenship, social responsibility, appreciation for diversity, environmental stewardship, and caring behavior that occurs within the development of literacy across the curriculum.

Award winners are recognized at IRA’s annual convention as part of the L-SR SIG Program. Additionally, winning students/programs are featured on our website!

All materials should be sent (via email and/or regular mail) to the Awards Chair of the IRA Literacy and Social Responsibility Special Interest Group by January 30, 2014, for the 2014 Literacy and Service Recognition Award.
