2016-2017 Dollar General Afterschool Literacy Award

The Afterschool Alliance and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation are accepting nominations for the Dollar General Afterschool Literacy Award. Eligible afterschool programs have the chance to win $10,000. This year, the focus of the award is on afterschool programs that provide integral literacy support to English language learner students and have demonstrated success improving students’ literacy skills —including reading, writing and comprehension. Program staff and directors are allowed and encouraged to nominate their own program, but you do not have to be officially affiliated with a program to nominate it. Nominations are due December 16, 2016.
