Grant DetailNational Book Foundation Seeks Nominations for Innovations in Reading Prize
National Book Foundation
Through the Innovations in Reading Prize, individuals and institutions that use particularly innovative methods to generate excitement and a passionate engagement with books and literature will be rewarded for their creativity and leadership.
The foundation is seeking applications from individuals and institutions that demonstrate a commitment to literature and the promotion of reading for its own sake. Key criteria include creativity, risk-taking, and a visionary quality, as well as a novel way of presenting books and literature. Priority will be given to applications from individuals and institutions that have developed an interdisciplinary approach and/or incorporate innovative thinking in design, technology, social change, social entrepreneurship, or other fields. Candidates may enter themselves for consideration or be nominated by others.
The winner will receive $10,000 and be featured prominently on the foundation's website and in other digital publicity.
Any citizen of the U.S. and American institution is eligible for the prize.
See the National Book Foundation website for complete program guidelines, nomination instructions, and information about past winners.
