Montana Center for the Book Prize nominations open


From Humanities Montana

The Montana Center for the Book, a program of Humanities Montana, has announced it is now accepting nominations for the third annual MCB Prize.

The nomination deadline is July 15.

The Montana Center for the Book Prize will be awarded to up to five programs across the state, nominated by a community member, or self-nominated, in recognition of their efforts to promote literacy and literature in their region. Award-winning programs will receive a $1,000 cash award, be featured on the Montana Center for the Book webpage, and have their events promoted by Humanities Montana.

The prize recognizes programs that offer creative and wide-reaching literary programming. Examples of prize-worthy activities include mini-festivals, literacy promotion, One Book programs, Little Free Library programs, reading/writing workshops and, of course, past MCB Prize-winning programs.

People can see a list of past winners and get more information about the nomination process online at http://www.humanitiesmontana.org/centerforthebook/prize.php/.

Nominees do not have to be a non-profit to receive the MCB Prize. Any organization or group with a literary program will be considered. In awarding the prize, the Montana Center for the Book will prioritize geographic diversity with a special emphasis on organizations that reach rural populations.

To nominate an organization in their community or their own program, people can follow these directions on the Montana Center for the Book nomination webpage at http://www.humanitiesmontana.org/centerforthebook/prize_nominations.php/. Only one letter is required.
