CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
The Montana Center for the Book, a program of Humanities Montana, is pleased to announce it is now accepting nominations for the first annual MCB Prize. Nominations will be accepted from May 1 to July 15, 2018.
The Montana Center for the Book Prize recognizes and supports programs that celebrate literature and give people increased access to books and writers. The MCB Prize includes a $1,000 cash award presented to each of up to five Montana-based organizations that offer creative and wide-reaching literary programming. Organizations may nominate themselves for the Prize and Humanities Montana will promote the MCB Prize widely. Prize recipients will be chosen by the Montana Center for the Book advisory committee and the Humanities Montana board of directors.
In awarding the MCB Prize, the Montana Center for the Book will prioritize geographic diversity with a special emphasis on organizations that reach rural populations. While programs do not have to be free, low or no cost programs are preferred. Examples of prize-worthy activities include mini-festivals, literacy promotion, One Book programs, little free library programs, reading/writing workshops, and, of course, the programs created by the 2017 MCB Prize winners.
