International Literacy Association Exemplary Reading Program Award
Exemplary Reading Program Award recognizes outstanding reading and
language arts programs at all grade levels (elementary, middle, and high
school). Its purpose is to call the public’s attention to outstanding
programs in schools throughout Canada and the United States. Each
participating state and provincial council, with an active ERPA
committee chair, may choose one winning school a year.
All public, private, charter, and parochial schools in the United States and Canada are eligible for the award provided:
state or province in which the school is located has an Exemplary
Reading Program Award Committee currently in place to judge program
applications from that state or province
At least one faculty or staff member of that school is a current ILA member
must be postmarked no later than November 15 and received at ILA
Headquarters no later than November 28. Headquarters will then forward
applications to the state/provincial Exemplary Reading Program Award
Committees for review.
