Program Meetings

Midwest Wisconsin Reading Council sponsors three opportunities for professional development throughout the year. The Fall Book Study opportunity is offered in the La Crosse area, and is centered around a current, relevant literacy topic. University credit is available.  Winter Soiree and Spring Fling meetings provide a chance to grow and network with others. The Spring program includes the election of Council officers for the coming year.

 

Young Author's Conference

Each spring, Midwest Wisconsin Reading Council sponsors an annual writer's conference for students from kindergarten through grade eight. The conference features celebrated authors and illustrators, an opportunity for students to share their writing, and parent workshops.  

Special Projects

The Council supports and funds literacy projects through grants and volunteerism. Midwest Wisconsin Reading Council is especially interested in receiving proposals for projects that support literacy in our region.

Awards

Midwest Wisconsin Reading Council presents several awards. Award recipients are nominated by Council membership. The specific awards and criteria for each award are available in the fall newsletter and are announced at our Spring Fling event.
