The award seeks afterschool programs with demonstrated success improving the literacy skills—including reading, writing and comprehension—of middle school program participants to serve as examples of the power of the out-of-school space. Program staff and directors are allowed and encouraged to nominate their own program, but nominators can also be unaffiliated with the program.
