How does literacy work for you?

September 8th is International Literacy Day!  Celebrate literacy by entering the 2nd Annual Literacy Clicks photo contest.

Literacy is the first step in breaking down walls and connecting with those around us.  From writing a thank-you note, to singing a song, to making a phone call, to sharing a story, literacy brings us closer together.

Take a photo and submit it with a brief statement on how literacy impacts your life under one of our 2 categories:

1. Literacy connecting you:  How has literacy brought you closer to those around you?

2. Literacy working for you: How has literacy helped you in your daily life?

Prizes of $300, $200 and $100 will be awarded to the top 3 photos in each category.  The contest ends on Dec. 31st and winners will be announced on Jan. 27th.

Visit for more information and to submit your photo.

There are hundreds of ways that literacy allows us to communicate and accomplish vital tasks.  Show us how literacy clicks for you!
