The Afterschool Alliance is thrilled to announce our continued partnership with the Dollar General Literacy Foundation and open the call for nominations for our second Dollar General Afterschool Literacy Award.
We need you to help us find exemplary afterschool programs that provide year-round literacy support and guidance to their students. Last year we received more than 350 nominations for afterschool programs across the country and learned about the wide range of supports afterschool programs provide their students to increase their literacy skills—from an afterschool program in Atlanta, Georgia, that provides one-on-one targeted support to refugee students in their community, to a program in Dane County, Wisconsin, that facilitates student-run newspapers. This year we are looking forward to hearing how afterschool programs are helping to develop their students' literacy skills, both during the school year and the summer. If you know a program that fits this description, nominate it today!
Nominations must be received by Aug. 27, 2015. More detailed instructions on the nomination process are available on the Afterschool Alliance website.
