Annual Literacy Leaders Award

Call For Nominations

We hope that you will help us identify those who have had a statewide impact on literacy by nominating individuals or groups for the South Carolina Annual Literacy Leader (ALL) awards for 2013.

The ALL awards are presented by the School of Library and Information Science at the University of South Carolina in the fall of each year to from one to three individuals and/or groups who have had a statewide impact on literacy in South Carolina. Their contributions can include the following kinds of activities:

  • developing and implementing innovative and creative approaches to literacy education;
  • establishing models of best practices in literacy education;
  • providing service to under-served groups and communities;
  • providing funding and support for these kinds of programs; or
  • making other statewide contributions deemed appropriate by the Committee.

Recipients can be any individuals, agencies, organizations or corporations with a local presence in South Carolina, regardless of their primary place of residence or corporate headquarters.

Nominations should take the form of a one-page letter summarizing the statewide impact of the nominee with respect to the award criteria. Nominations should be received no later than May 7, 2013. Nominations may be sent via email or postal mail
