The Association for Library Services to Children (ALSC)/Candlewick Press
"Light the Way" Grant is accepting applications until December 16. The
Programs and Services Recognition Committee invites you to apply! The grant
is open to any project that seeks to engage an underserved population of
children from birth up to the age of 14. Underserved children may include
(but are not limited to) those who have learning or physical differences,
those who are speaking English as a second language, those who are in a
non-traditional school environment, those who are in non-traditional family
settings (such as teen parents, foster children, children in the juvenile
justice system, and children in gay and lesbian families), and those who
need accommodation service to meet their needs.

The grant recognizes that underserved populations vary from community to
community, and all programs that seek to specifically address concerns in
this area are eligible for consideration.

more information and to apply.

Thank you!
