In a time when there are low expectations for youth, this year’s theme, “What about the children” urges everyone to increase their efforts in making certain that today’s youth are equipped with the resources and the support needed to achieve literacy.
This year’s Literacy Scholarship award recipient will be Spoken Word Press, an organization whose mission is to help teens develop their creative voices as agents for social change through poetry and literacy workshops, community service projects and leadership initiatives.
