The National Book Foundation has launched a new contest whereby they will giveaway a $10,000 prize to an individual or organization that has developed an innovative project which creates and sustains a lifelong love of reading in the community they serve. In addition, the Foundation will recognize four projects, which will receive honorable mention.
Libraries, Non-profits and startups will be eligible. I have the feeling the organization might be giving away the prize to app developers who do something interesting with digital reading, like offering bite sized or serialized fiction.
