It’s that time of year again where we nominate learners for our two annual awards! This is truly a very special time for our program as we have the opportunity to hear all the amazing success stories from our learners.

In 2010, Sioux-Hudson Literacy Council named two awards after two learners that embody the spirit of our program.

The Ivy Tabobandung Award for Leadership is awarded to the learner who has shown leadership in the GLA learning community, whether it is through online communication and classes or in their physical community. We will also consider learners who have advocated for and supported other learners and non-learners in their goals and dreams.

The Lois Gray Award for Achievement will be awarded to the learner who has reached or is on their way to reaching their goal, whether it is employment, further training or education.  We also will consider learners who have overcome obstacles and challenges in their lives to become successful adult learners.

We would like to give the GLA & SHLC communities a chance to nominate learners that have taken courses with Sioux-Hudson Literacy Council and/or Good Learning Anywhere.

If you know a learner who embodies the descriptions of the awards listed above, please email their names to and tell us the reasons why you’re nominating them. Please email your nominations by Thursday, March 8th, 2018.
