On Friday, October 19, EWI was honored to receive the 2018 Iowa Literacy Award from the Iowa Center for the Book. The award serves to recognize an organization that has made an outstanding contribution to increasing literacy in the state of Iowa.
“We are thrilled to present Everybody Wins! Iowa with the 2018 Iowa Literacy Award,” said Michael Scott, State Librarian. “Their efforts make a tremendous difference in the lives of not only the students, but the mentors as well. Everybody does win, indeed.”
The 2018 Iowa Literacy Award was made possible with support from the Library of Congress Center for the Book Literacy Awards program, through the generosity of David M. Rubenstein. A plaque and $2,000 were accepted by our Executive Director, Karen Ligas.
Photos from the ceremony and more information are available on the Iowa Center for the Book’s website.
