ncteWe are excited to announce that we are partnering with the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) to launch a new grant program for high school teachers nationwide.

Two teachers who use their creativity to inspire and successfully instill a lifelong love of reading in students will be awarded $10,000 grants to help make their innovative reading programs possible. In addition, honorable mentions will receive book donations for their classrooms from Penguin Random House. The National Teacher Award for Lifelong Readers will honor a teacher who inspires their students to read all genres of writing while the Maya Angelou Teacher Award for Poetry will honor Dr. Angelou’s legacy by recognizing a teacher who inspires their students to love poetry.

If this sounds like you, or a teacher you know, we invite you to apply or nominate someone. More information, including the application and program guidelines, can be found here. The deadline to apply is May 31, 2019, and the grant recipients will be announced at NCTE’s Annual Convention on November 21, 2019, in Baltimore, Maryland.
