I Love to Read Grants

I love to read draw

Amaz­ing I Love to Read events and activ­i­ties are hap­pen­ing in school library learn­ing com­mons through­out Man­i­toba. To encour­age you to share these won­der­ful activ­i­ties and events, the MSLA has set aside two, $150.00 grants to be awarded by ran­dom draw to any school library in Man­i­toba who sends us what they are doing to pro­mote I Love to Read Month.

To qual­ify:

1) Sub­mit, in writ­ing, a min­i­mum 500 word descrip­tion of your I Love to Read event, les­son or activ­ity.   (Note: The MSLA reserves the right to pub­lish this in either their web­site and/or jour­nal at a future date).

2)  Please indi­cate your name, your email and phone num­ber, your school and its address,  grades of stu­dents, school divi­sion, on your application.

3) You must be a mem­ber of the Man­i­toba School Library Asso­ci­a­tion in the same year as the sub­mis­sion to participate.

4) Your school has not won the same grant in the past five years.


Each school in Man­i­toba is allowed one entry per year. Please for­ward your entry to Brandi Nicholau­son (bnicholauson@pembinatrails.ca)

Win­ning Submissions:

Win­ners will be cho­sen by a ran­dom draw from qual­i­fied sub­mis­sions.  If you are one of the lucky win­ners of this grant, you may either use this money to bring in an author to your school, help defray costs for attend­ing the MYRCA award cer­e­mony in Sep­tem­ber or pur­chase books for your school library.

Dead­line for Submission:

Recip­i­ents will be informed by mail. Note:  Cheques to recip­i­ents will be made out to the school  and not to the recip­i­ent directly.
