ProLiteracy has been selected as the recipient of the 2019 David M. Rubenstein Prize of the Library of Congress Literacy Awards Program.
The David M. Rubenstein Prize is awarded for an outstanding and measurable contribution to increasing literacy levels to an organization based either inside or outside the United States that has demonstrated exceptional and sustained depth in its commitment to the advancement of literacy. The awarded organization meets the highest standards of excellence in its operations and services.
The Literacy Awards, originated by Rubenstein in 2013, honor organizations doing exemplary, innovative, and replicable work, and they spotlight the need for the global community to unite in working for universal literacy. ProLiteracy was selected because of its unique and inspiring model for other organizations interested in literacy promotion.
The 2019 Library of Congress Literacy awards was presented August 30 at the National Book Festival Gala in Washington D.C. Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden and philanthropist David M. Rubenstein awarded the top prizes.
