This year the contest boasts a $1200 total in cash prizes and is now open to anyone in the tri-county area (Middlesex, Oxford and Elgin counties).

While last year’s contest asked participants “What does literacy look like to you?”, this year the contest coordinators wanted to go deeper into the heart of literacy and “expose” its impact on our daily lives. The result? 2 contest categories:

Literacy Working for You – How does literacy help you accomplish something?

Literacy Connecting You – How do you stay connected with someone using literacy? 

With the deadline 3 months away (December 31 2010), will you be one of the finalists? I know I’ve already dusted off my camera lens and will be out looking for inspiration!

Here, I plan to post my assumptions, thoughts, feelings, and – you guessed it – lessons learned about literacy.
