Dear Reading Enthusiasts,
The USBBY Committee for the IBBY-Asahi Reading Promotion Award is soliciting names of programs to be considered for USBBY’s nomination for the 2022 IBBY-Asahi Reading Promotion Award. The Award is given biennially to a group or institution, which by their outstanding activities are judged by an international Jury to be making a lasting contribution to book promotion programs for children and young people. The prize-winning organization will receive a diploma and a sum of $10,000, which is generously given by the Asahi Shimbun Newspaper Company of Japan. Each National Section of IBBY is invited to nominate 1 or 2 programs for the Award.
If you know of a program worthy of consideration for this prestigious Award, or if you would like further information, please email:
Dr. Elizabeth Poe, Chair of the USBBY IBBY-Asahi Reading Promotion Award Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Along with the name of the organization, please include its website, a brief justification for the program’s worthiness for consideration, and your contact information.
Due date for all program suggestions is April 1, 2021.
