Award for Instilling a Love of Reading

The Penguin Random House Teacher Awards for Literacy recognizes the nation’s most dynamic and resourceful K–12 public school teachers who use their creativity to inspire and successfully instill a love of reading in their students. Competitive applicants foster a love and passion for reading in students through innovative programs and curricula, take risks in presenting books and literature to students in a unique way, make a commitment to helping reluctant readers and are visionary in their methods of reaching them, and create distinctive programs and activities that support and promote a community of readers. The first-place winner will receive a $10,000 cash prize; $2,500 in Penguin Random House titles for his or her school; $250 in First Book Marketplace credits; and transportation, lodging, and conference registration to attend the National Council of Teachers of English conference in St. Louis, Missouri, from November 16–19, 2017. Interested applicants will find this grant opportunity on GetEdFunding, a free database sponsored by CDW•G of thousands of funding opportunities for educators.
