To celebrate International Literacy Day on Sept. 8, the Revelstoke chapter of the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy has announced that nominations for the annual Champions for Literacy are now open!

“Do you know a parent, a teacher, a grandparent, a business owner, a community member that supports learning in Revelstoke?” writes CBAL Community Literacy Coordinator Tracy Spannier. “Nominate them as a Champion for Literacy today!”
