Now is the time to nominate community members who have contributed to literacy in Castlegar.
The Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL) is currently accepting champions of literacy nominations.
“A champion for literacy is anyone who has made a contribution to literacy in Castlegar and area, including individuals, groups, businesses or organizations,” explains Alana Murdoch, community literacy coordinator for CBAL. “In the past we have had a diverse group of nominees, including grandparents, parents, teachers, volunteers, librarians, principals, facilitators and businesses. Everyone who is nominated is recognized.”
Nominees will be recognized at CBAL’s event on Wednesday, June 22 at Selkirk College.
“This is our sixth year having our champions for literacy event,” says Murdoch. “We feel it is very important to recognize the contributions people have made to literacy in our community. This is a time to gather all the nominators and nominees, staff and volunteers of literacy programs and celebrate all the great accomplishments of the year.”
Those who would like to nominate a champion for literacy can find nomination forms at cbal.org/castlegar.html or at the Castlegar & District Public Library. Deadline for nominations is Monday, June 6, forms can be submitted at the library or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
