"Bridges to Literacy"
Welcome to the 2013 Kentucky Literacy Celebration! This year’s theme of “Bridges to Literacy” is inspired by the many wonderful physical bridges of Kentucky, as well as the many bridges literacy spans to connect various aspects of life and learning. We invite everyone to participate in our 3rd annual event!
All Kentuckians are invited to host, share, or participate in a literacy event. As listings of events are submitted from all across the state, they will be compiled and grouped by county. Some events encompass an entire week, while others are on specific days. Events will be coming in continually, so the pages will be updated daily to accommodate additional participation announcements. Event announcements may be submitted using the KLC Event Announcement Form below.
First Lady Jane Beshear welcomes the opportunity and invites everyone to participate in Kentucky Literacy Celebration Week.
We invite participation through photography as well. Following the theme, photos of bridges in Kentucky may be submitted to our Facebook page. The photos may range from large structures over our rivers to bridges over creeks or garden footpaths. These photos may inspire discussion topics, historical research, or writing prompts.
Share Your Event
Share your events with us so we may post them on our webpage. This pre-event form will help capture the general information about the event. Upon completion of the event, a link to the post-event form will be sent to the email you provide to capture the specifics of the event. This information will be compiled, posted on this website, and shared with various partners to promote your participation.
See the Impact
The intent of Kentucky Literacy Celebration is to engage all Kentuckians in literacy activities. As events are submitted from across the state, the corresponding counties on the map will be highlighted. Additionally, all events have been compiled into one list grouped by county for easy reference. See the list here
