Outstanding Contribution to Reading Awarded to Reading is Fundamental of Southern California
The International Literacy Association
Celebrate Literacy Award
Each year, local chapters of the International Literacy Association present the Celebrate Literacy Award to an agency, individual, program, or organization that has made a significant contribution to the promotion of literacy. This year, the Orange County Reading Association is proud to present the award to Reading is Fundamental of Southern California (RIFSoCal). For the fourth year in a row, RIFSoCal and the Orange County Department of Education have worked together to bring the RIFSoCal Motivational Reading Program to thousands of Orange County children who would love to have books to call their own. Additionally, the organization provides opportunities to support parent involvement, positive school climate, and state standards. On behalf of the International Literacy Association and the Orange County Reading Association, we thank RIFSoCal for helping to transform the lives of young people through literacy.
