Schools, libraries, museums, businesses, websites, and other organization that are doing something truly unique and innovative to help foster a love of reading are invited to apply for the National Book Foundation’s 2012 Innovations in Reading Prize.
Winners receive $2,500 each to put toward their programs, and the Foundation will publicize the program via their website, press releases, eNewsletter, and Facebook and Twitter feeds. As part of the Prize, winners receive an all-expenses-paid trip to New York to attend a special luncheon at the Ford Foundation, where they will present their work to funders and other people in the field, as well as the National Book Awards Ceremony and Benefit Dinner at Cipriani Wall Street.
