Dollar General Afterschool Literacy Award

Posted by Dollar General Literacy Foundation on

For the second year in a row, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation and the Afterschool Alliance are thrilled to present the Dollar General Afterschool Literacy Award. We need your help to find the next Dollar General Afterschool Literacy Award winner that will receive $10,000 for their program, be recognized in a joint Dollar General Literacy Foundation and Afterschool Alliance issue brief, and be featured in upcoming webinars and national conferences.

This year we are searching for afterschool programs that provide year-round support to help improve their students’ reading, writing and critical thinking skills. In a departure from last year’s eligibility requirements, we are opening up the award to afterschool programs that serve students of any age, including elementary, middle and high school students.

A downloadable copy of the nomination form is also available to allow nominators to review the questions prior to filling out and submitting the online form. The nomination form includes a number of questions that require operational and programmatic details about the nominated program, and reviewing the downloadable version of the nomination form before completing the online form is strongly encouraged.

Nominations close on August. 27.

Visit our awards page for more information about the Dollar General Afterschool Literacy Award. Last year, we were blown away by the tremendous work taking place in the field to advance literacy. This year we can’t wait to learn more about the inspirational work of afterschool programs taking place nationwide to support the development of their students’ literacy skills.
