Apply Now for the 2013 Innovations in Reading Prize

Innovations in Reading PrizeEvery year, the National Book Foundation (NBA) awards a number of prizes of up to $2,500 to individuals and institutions—or partnerships between the two—that have developed innovative ways of creating a lifelong love of reading. This is the fifth year that NBA is offering the 2013 Innovations in Reading Prize, sponsored by Levenger. And wouldn’t you know it? One of the 2012 winners, Bookends (Poudre River Public Library District, CO), found out about the competition right here, in SLJTeen.

Applications for the 2013 Innovations in Reading Prize must be postmarked or emailed by February 20, 2013. All U.S. citizens and American companies are eligible, including nonprofit groups, technology companies, or those in the military. In addition to the prize money, winners will receive an all-expense-paid trip to New York City to attend a luncheon in their honor and invitations to NBA events, such as the National Book Awards dinner and ceremony.
