Lois Hole Memorial Literacy Awards

Call for Nominations

The Centre typically presents the Lois Hole Memorial Literacy Awards at our annual Leading with Literacy Breakfast, in celebration of National Family Literacy Day (January 27). Because we couldn't host the Breakfast this year, we will present the awards at our Annual General Meeting on May 18.

We are seeking nominations for the Lois Hole Community Leadership Award, which recognizes an outstanding individual, business, or group whose efforts demonstrate an ongoing commitment to family literacy in Alberta. The nomination deadline is Friday, April 2, at 4:30 p.m.

More about the awards

It’s never too early!

Children who begin life in a learning environment are more likely to succeed in school and in life and parents are their first teachers. Our programs provide parents with the tools they need to support their children’s early language and literacy development.

It’s never too late!

We also support adult learners on their literacy journey, building on strengths and meeting the individual needs of the learners.
