Submission Opportunity - National Ambassador Jason Reynolds







National Ambassador Event Proposal

Reminder: Deadline Jan. 15



Thank you to everyone who has already submitted!


Every Child a Reader is currently accepting proposal submissions from schools interested in hosting an event with Jason Reynolds, the 7th National Ambassador for Young People's Literature. If you are a bookstore, library, or other organization, please connect with a school or group of schools in your area to plan an event.


Reynolds will meet with students virtually* in small, underserved communities across the country during the second year of his two-year term to have meaningful discussions with young people. Through his platform, GRAB THE MIC: Tell Your Story, he will connect with, listen to, and empower students in these communities to share their own stories and start their journey as storytellers.


Each event will follow a basic format that allows for Jason to interact directly with students. We will work with selected locations to personalize/modify.


* We continue to assess travel safety and will make adjustments to in-person events if possible in 2021
