The Reading Council of Greater Winnipeg (RCGW) has been dedicated to promoting literacy and developing lifelong readers since 1956. We have a proud history of being a literacy leader in Winnipeg and its surrounding area. We are a Special Area Group of Educators (SAGE) of the Manitoba Teachers' Society and a local council of the International Literacy Association.
RCGW provides professional development for educators, shares resources and ideas on our website, celebrates I Love to Read month, promotes literacy in the community, honours literacy leaders and up-and-coming teacher candidates, and supports literacy projects. Join RCGW today!
The Reading Council of Greater Winnipeg is proud to support literacy throughout Manitoba. As part of our outreach initiatives, we support members through awards and literacy grants, and we provide scholarships to teacher candidates who demonstrate excellence.
Our annual awards program recognizes those who have made valuable contributions to literacy in our province. With teachers going above and beyond to teach their students safely during the pandemic, we believe there is no better year to nominate deserving teachers. Nominations are due April 9, 2021.

Two $500 scholarships are available to students in a Bachelor of Education program who plan to teach in Manitoba after graduation. Applications should be committed to furthering literacy and language arts skills of all students. Applications are due April 9, 2021. Learn more.
