UNESCO International Literacy Prizes 2017


UNESCO has recently opened its call for applications for the International Literacy Prizes 2017 which this year is under the theme: ‘Literacy in a Digital World’.

Since 1967, UNESCO International Literacy Prizes have rewarded excellence and innovation in the field of literacy. Over 475 projects and programmes undertaken by governments, non-governmental organizations and individuals around the world have been recognized. Through these prestigious Prizes, UNESCO seeks to support effective literacy practices and encourages the promotion of dynamic literate societies.

We would highly appreciate if you could spread the word in your networks, so that interested individuals, organizations and institutions in the field of literacy could have the chance for applying and winning these prestigious prizes, and receive international recognition + a monetary prize for their excellent work.
