Lexia Accepting Educator Entries for LETRS Grant Contest Through Dec. 31

Lexia, a division of Cambium Learning Group, is accepting entries through December 31 for its inaugural Lexia LETRS Science of Reading Grant Contest for K–5 teachers in the United States. 

The contest will award grants to 120 recipients, providing them with no-cost access to the two-year Lexia LETRS (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling) professional learning program, a literacy-focused course that equips teachers “to be language and literacy experts in the science of reading,” the company said. 

Developed by Dr. Louisa Moats and leaders in the field of literacy, LETRS is used by educators in 47 states and teaches the skills needed to master the foundational and fundamentals of reading and writing instruction, such as phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and written language.

Entries require a short video of up to 1 minute to be shared on social media with the hashtag #LexiaLETRSGrant in which the educator answers the question: “How will Lexia LETRS help transform your teaching to impact student learning?” A panel of judges will evaluate each entry. Winners will be notified via email around the end of January 2024, and they will have the option of beginning LETRS in March or April of 2024.

Educators who do not currently have access to LETRS through a school, district, or state contract are eligible to enter.
