Currently, UNESCO offers two international literacy awards:
The UNESCO King Sejong Literacy Prize (3 awards) was established in 1989 with assistance from the government of the Republic of Korea and specifically emphasizes the growth of literacy based on mother tongues.
The People’s Republic of China helped establish the UNESCO Confucius Prize for Literacy in 2005. It gives special regard to functional literacy, leveraging technology surroundings, in support of adults in rural regions and out-of-school kids.
Six awards, like in previous years, will be given to people or groups for their exceptional initiatives to advance literacy education. The programs are asked to reflect on the theme “Promoting literacy for a world in transition: Building the foundation for peaceful and sustainable societies” for this year.
The focus of the theme is on the critical role that literacy plays in enabling people and communities to adapt and build peaceful, sustainable societies, particularly in times of change and social, economic, and environmental issues.
- Each laureate of the UNESCO King Sejong Literacy Prize receives a medal, a certificate, and US$20,000.
- Each recipient of the UNESCO Confucius Prize for Literacy receives a medal, a certificate, and US$30,000.
Open to all governmental entities, non-governmental organizations, and people who support and improve literacy learning through initiatives and programs.
