***Individuals who received a "Bookie Award" in 2016 are not eligible to be an honoree in that same category for 2017. Those who were honored in that category with a ribbon/recognition in our program, but did not receive an actual "Bookie" are eligible to be nominated again and win in 2017.***
At Promising Pages, we thrive on collaboration. We serve tens of thousands of children every year, either directly via our own book distribution programs or via our 30+ social service agency partners. Our revolutionary book upcycling model works to better the lives and futures of children and families in our community. Every year we collect and distribute over 100,000 donated books; however, the books themselves mean nothing if they aren’t being read. Books themselves are simply pages if they aren’t being leveraged by you, our true bookworms; people who care about our community, the families who are in it, and the children who are our future. You are the “promise in our pages.”
We invite you to nominate yourself, an individual, or organization you know for “A Bookie.” Individual and organizational nominees do not need any affiliation with Promising Pages and a relationship with us will have no bearing on the winners chosen by our independent judging panel. We simply want to celebrate the outstanding and mostly uncredited literacy and educational work being done in our community.
(*Promising Pages staff and programs do not qualify for awards.)
