Literacy Leader

Do you know someone who exhibits leadership qualities and promotes literacy?

The Arkansas Reading Association can help you recognize individuals that shine as Literacy Leaders.

Help ARA let these individuals know that we appreciate and recognize their efforts to promote literacy by presenting them the ARA Literacy Leader pin.
Each recipient will receive an email explaining that YOU have recognized his/her efforts.

They will be able to pick up their Literacy Leader pin and certificate at the 2015 ARA Literacy Conference,  In addition their name will be displayed with the many other literacy leaders at our conference.

The best part about this recognition is it only costs $5 and the proceeds will go ARA literacy projects, grants and scholarships.  

Recognize your  Literacy Leaders today.
