Random House has announced the Random House Teacher Awards, which recognises “dynamic and resourceful teachers” who use their creativity to inspire and successfully instill a love of reading in their students”. Open to full and part-time teachers in public schools, the awards will be presented by Crown author Jonathan Kozol at the National Council of Teachers of English annual convention during the “Mentoring Matters” breakfast, held November 16 in Las Vegas.
Awards consist of a $10,000 first place grant, $5,000 second place grant and a $2,500 third place grant payable to each teacher’s school. Book donations will be made to winners and runners-up. More information, including application guidelines, can be found here. http://bit.ly/TlaPX8
