2008-2009 Recognition Awards
The Recognition Awards for projects carried out by schools in order to promote an appreciation of books and reading are continuing through 2008-2009, for a fourth year.
These prizes are intended to acknowledge the steps that schools have taken to help young people develop reading tastes and habits, and thereby contribute to student success.
Each of Québec's regional offices awards prizes for the most innovative projects with the most durable impact.
Other prizes are awarded at the provincial level, based on submissions made by the regional offices. These provincial prizes are intended to highlight the contributions of exceptional projects and to ensure that their influence is felt throughout the Québec school system.
To be eligible for this year's awards, projects must have been carried out between September 1, 2008, and the end of June 2009. Each regional office will set its own deadline.
Thanks to the submissions presented as part of this measure, the plethora of innovative projects will continue to grow.
