PIA Press Release

DepEd-2 conducts 2010 Literacy Awards

by Oliver Baccay

Tuguegarao City (29 March) -- In support to the national government's commitment to achieve the United Nations goal of reducing adult illiteracy, the Department of Education (DepEd) Region 2 and the Literacy Coordinating Council (LCC) have mobilize all sectors of the society to promote and disseminate the importance of literacy programs.

In DepEd Memorandum #28, the program aims to expand and institutionalize literacy efforts by motivating and recognizing individuals, institutions and local government units through awards and appropriate recognition, and further encourage the development and replication of innovative, creative and indigenous literacy programs.

The Regional Director of DepEd and the chief of the Alternative Learning System (ALS) will spearhead the selection process and apply the revised set of criteria and guidelines. The selection process has started on March 26 up to April 26, 2010 and the declaration of regional winners will be done on the 29th of April. Regional winners will be elevated for the national search.

Dr. Norma Salcedo, DepEd-LCC head, said the literacy programs has demonstrated that it can help alleviate poverty, provide livelihood, address social welfare needs, promote freedom and make education facilities accessible.

She said in spite of difficulties such as poor compensation, hampered mobility due to geographical and peace orders problems, inadequacy of teaching materials; the commitment and dedication of the workers and institutions have not dimmed even slightly.

The search has two categories; the Outstanding Literacy Program Award which is conferred to a non-government or civic organization, academe or institution, which has evident positive impact on the learners and the community; and the Outstanding Local Government Unit Award which is awarded to a local government unit which has developed policies, programs and projects conducive to literacy development.
