Looking for something to distinguish yourself and give you an excuse for a trip to New Orleans in May? Perhaps applying for an International Reading Association (IRA) award or grant will satisfy. Applicants should send materials by the due date to be reviewed by our committees. Those who are chosen will be recognized at the IRA 59th Annual Conference in New Orleans from May 9-12, 2014. There is a grant or award for almost anyone involved in the field of education; teachers, graduate students, authors… the list goes on and on. So to all of those bold enough to apply we wish you good luck!
