Reward for Encouraging Lifelong Love of Reading

Each year the National Book Foundation’s Innovations in Reading Prize awards $10,000 to an individual or organization that has developed an innovative project that creates and sustains a lifelong love of reading in the community served. The foundation also recognizes four projects with the designation of honorable mention. Applicants for the award should share the National Book Foundation’s mission to expand the audience for literature in America; focus on reading and not exclusively literacy skills; demonstrate innovation in mission, approach, and/or audience/community served; and apply for an existing program/project/initiative with evidence of success. As Innovations in Reading is a prize and not a grant, the goal is to reward work already under way, encouraging continuation and/or expansion.

Deadlines: February 15, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. (ET) for applications; 2019 winner and honorable mentions to be announced the first week of May
