Community Champions- Nominations Now Open!

Seashore Family Literacy celebrates leaders in South Lincoln County who demonstrate that they share the values of a Community Champion.

Literacy has more than one form.  Reading and writing, yes!  The second definition of literacy is competence in any body of knowledge.  Who do you know that inspires literacy in family and community values?  Who generates inclusive activity?  Who leads us to greater understanding of ourselves and our community?  Who supports personal growth or family cohesiveness?  That person could be a Community Champion.

Who will you nominate that gives of themselves and their time to transform and improve one of these three categories?

1. The Champion of Community demonstrates literacy in enhancing the feeling of community;

2. The Champion of Families strengthens families;

3. The Champion of Civic Education embraces civic responsibility and promotes positive community engagement.

Nomination forms are accepted at Seashore Family Literacy Learning Center, between 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM, Monday through Thursday, by U.S. Mail to PO Box 266, Waldport, OR 97394, or online at

Nominations close at 2:00 PM, November, 2017.

The Recognition Ceremony will be December 9, 2017, 5:30 PM, at the Seashore Learning Center.  Dinner will be served. There is a suggested donation of $10.00. Join the celebration for good food and to be entertained by live music and the inspiring stories of Community Champions.
