Contest Announcement! How will you celebrate Family Literacy Day?
Date posted: January 19, 2012
We are celebrating Family Literacy Day with a Contest!
Family literacy can be broadly defined as the way parents, children and extended family members use literacy at home, at work, at school and in their community, and how families learn together in these contexts. It includes learning at all ages!
To celebrate Family Literacy Day (January 27, 2012) in BC, we’re giving away three sets of books, each for a different age or purpose: children, young adults and family literacy practitioners.
If you are in BC*, you can enter to win one of three book prize packages:
Prize package 1:
National Geographic: Animal and Science books for young readers
» A range of picture books, posters and learning books by National Geographic. Beautiful images illustrate facts about animals, science, and the world. For young readers grades K-3.
Prize package 2:
The Salt Trilogy for young adults: Salt, Gool and The Limping Man
