Twice Upon a Time – Free Books for Ottawa Kids – is thrilled to announce that we have been recognised as a Reading Champion by Scholastic Canada. The announcement can be seen at http://www.scholastic.ca/readingchampions/. Scholastic Canada had this to say about Twice Upon a Time’s mission:
“They are constantly striving to strengthen and build partnerships with other community organizations and are always expanding their services and selection of books. Due to their positive social impact in the Ottawa community and their continual efforts to grow, Twice Upon a Time is undeniably a Reading Champion.”
Scholastic Canada established the Scholastic Reading Champions program in commemoration of their 60th anniversary. Over the course of 2017, Scholastic Canada will celebrate 60 Canadians who help children discover the pleasure and power of reading. A Reading Champion can be any individual, school, teacher, librarian, non-profit, charity or literacy organization who actively promotes the gift of reading and, through their efforts, helps children discover the power of reading. Nominations are made by the public, and each month in 2017 five Reading Champions are selected based on these nominations.
Twice Upon a Time – Free Books for Ottawa Kids – is thrilled to have been nominated and selected for the month of June 2017! As a selected Reading Champion, Twice Upon a Time will receive a certificate of recognition and Scholastic Canada will make a book donation, up to a retail value of $1,000.00 to Twice Upon a Time. Thank you to Scholastic Canada for selecting us and for the most generous support.
