National Book Foundation: Innovations in Reading PrizeDeadline: February 15, 2019
The National Book Foundation’s Innovations in Reading Prize will award an individual or organization that has developed an innovative project which creates and sustains a lifelong love of reading in the community they serve. Applicants should share the Foundation’s mission to expand the audience for literature in America. It is interested in programs that focus on reading, rather than strictly literacy skills.
The award is a prize, not a grant. The goal of the prize is to reward existing programs with evidence of success and encourage those programs to continue.
Amount: One prize of $10,000 will be awarded. In addition to the prize, four projects will receive honorable mentions via the press, social media, and the National Book Foundation’s website and newsletter.
Eligibility: All U.S. citizens and American institutions are eligible.
