Literacy Alive! — Tools & Resources


Planning for your Literacy Alive! project is just as important as the day of the event itself. Kappa Delta Pi has the resources to help you develop your Literacy Alive! event.


Literacy Alive! — Frequently Asked Questions

My KDP chapter wants to participate in Literacy Alive! How can we get started?
We’re glad you are ready to participate in Literacy Alive! You will want to start planning your event by considering the needs of your community: the talents, resources, and interests of your chapter members; organizations that you could potentially partner with; and so on. For more complete information about planning your Literacy Alive! event, check out our Collegiate Literacy Alive! resources and our Professional Member Literacy Alive! resources.

What are some examples of Literacy Alive! programs that other chapters or professional members do?
The possibilities for hosting a Literacy Alive! event are truly endless! Click here for examples of projects hosted by collegiate chapters.

We also have examples of projects that professional members have hosted in their local communities. Click here for summaries of previous professional member Literacy Alive! programs.

When is the Achievement Form due?
The due date for the Collegiate Achievement Form is May 1.

The Professional Member Achievement Form should be completed within 2 weeks of completing your Literacy Alive! event.

I remember completing 2 forms in previous years. Does our chapter need to submit both forms?
No, chapters are only required to submit one form, the Literacy Alive! Collegiate Achievement form. In previous years, chapters were required to submit 2 forms, however, in simplifying the submission process we have eliminated the confirmation form.

Our chapter did not receive a Literacy Alive! award last year. How can we improve our submission this year?
The Collegiate Achievement Forms are used to determine which chapters receive Literacy Alive! awards each year. Refer to the Literacy Alive! Collegiate Rubric for the complete list of criteria used for reviewing the Achievement Forms. If your chapter hosts the same Literacy Alive! event year after year, consider what you can do to enhance the project this year. Have another KDP member review the form prior to submitting; reviewers can tell when time was invested in creating a well-written submission.

Our chapter participates in Literacy Alive! but we aren’t trying to earn an award. Why should we complete the Collegiate Achievement Form?
We realize our KDP chapters host Literacy Alive! projects as a service to their communities rather than for the recognition from the Society; however, we would still love to know about the success of your Literacy Alive! programs. Aside from the award process, we like to recognize each participating chapter for their commitment to our signature service initiative and also individual members that contribute to each program. Submitting the Collegiate Achievement Form is one way to share with us the impact you are making on your community. Having accurate information also allows us to apply for grants and funding for future Literacy Alive! initiatives. Your impact counts!
