News May 08, 2008 Flamborough Review

The Ontario Government will be accepting nominations for the 2008 Literacy Awards until May 23.

The national award celebrates outstanding achievements in adult literacy.

The annual Council of Federation Literacy Award highlights a different aspect of literacy each year. Ontario's 2008 award will recognize a literacy leader who has successfully raised awareness or understanding of literacy issues in their community.

"Promoting literacy in our communities is an important part of ensuring every Ontarian finds opportunity, gets a good job and builds a bright future," said Premier Dalton McGuinty.

Each year, 13 winners are chosen, one from every province and territory, and the Council of Federation presents the award at its annual meeting each summer.

Canada's premiers created the award in 2004 to bring attention to the cultural and economic importance of reading, writing, math and other related skills.

Both individuals and organizations are eligible for the honour.
