The reading momentum that has built around The Willow Awards since it’s inception in 2001 is incredible!
This past year, we had the highest number of voters ever – 15,524 children and youth voted from 176 schools and libraries across Saskatchewan, an increase of 4484 voters. We want to continue to help build this reading culture in our province! Essential expenditures for The Willow Awards include the Gala, website hosting and the production and distribution of posters and bookmarks to all schools and libraries across Saskatchewan.
The financial support of both individuals and organizations is critical to the continued functioning of The Saskatchewan Young Readers’ Choice Awards.
Unfortunately, our corporate sponsorship has fallen dramatically in this past year. We are reaching out to everyone for help. We know that making a donation as an individual is not always possible but hope that you might consider even a small amount. Please encourage others to do so. Information about donating can be found here https://willowawards.ca/donations.
