Deadline: October 15
This is presented by the International Reading Association each Spring. It is the highest honor bestowed on any reading council. ORA desires that each local council in the state of Oklahoma achieve this goal each year.
Eligibility: In order to qualify for Honor Council status, the council must be in good standing according to IRA Bylaws. Specifically, the council must demonstrate that (a) all council officers are members of the International Reading Association, and (b) at least 10 council members are also members of the International Reading Association. Council officers for the year may be counted in this total.
Deadlines: The “Intent to Participate” form must be postmarked no later than October 15. All documented data must be postmarked no later than March 1. However, councils may submit the information to IRA Headquarters any time prior to the deadline—and are encouraged to do so. (The earlier, the better.)
Now available: Online, interactive "Intent to Participate" form. Council leaders may enter information online and click "submit." Deadline is October 15.
