Dollar General Afterschool Literacy Award

For the 2nd year, the Afterschool Alliance and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation are pleased to announce the Dollar General Afterschool Literacy Award. Eligible afterschool programs have the chance to win $10,000 and be recognized in a joint Dollar General Literacy Foundation and Afterschool Alliance issue brief. They are seeking nominations for afterschool programs that have excelled in providing literacy support to help improve their students’ reading, writing and critical thinking skills. The focus of the Dollar General Afterschool Literacy Award is on afterschool programs that are providing year-round literacy support through a combination of afterschool and summer programming, and that have demonstrated success improving the literacy skills—including reading, writing and comprehension—of program participants. Program staff and directors are allowed and encouraged to nominate their own program, but do not have to be officially affiliated with a program to nominate it. Applications are due August 27, 2015.
