The Bookie Awards celebrate people who are having a positive impact on
early literacy in Calgary and Alberta.
Passionate about early literacy, winners of this award show dedication in the business sector, and a willingness to get involved with literacy initiatives and encourage co-workers and business peers to do the same.
This award honours individuals whose efforts and actions in the education sector are improving early literacy awareness while raising the level of early literacy for children.
A dedicated, caring community volunteer or family member who encourages a child or children to become readers, and inspires others to do the same, is a candidate for this award. This person has a strong belief in community spirit and has directly improved the life of a child or children.
A committee of Calgary Reads staff, board members and volunteers reviews all nominations, seeks additional information as desired and selects Bookie Award recipients.
