The Certified Literate Community Program (CLCP) is a non-profit collaborative organized to promote, support, and enhance community literacy efforts locally. Communities participating in the program analyze community needs, create awareness of the needs, ensure that learning opportunities are offered, and evaluate progress so that the majority of citizens needing to improve their skills do so within 10 years. A network is formed to coordinate business, church, volunteer, social service, local government and schools, media and other efforts in the community to reach, influence and support those who want to improve their education.
The CLCP is hosting a trivia night event to help increase our community's literacy rate and provide scholarships for GED students. The event will be held November 13, 2014, at The Martin Centre in downtown Douglas at 6:30 p.m. Admission to the event will be $5 for adults and $3 for students. Teams of three representing any company or organization will be competing for awards such as "The Know it All's," "The Smarty Pants," best Costumes and loudest cheering section. The entry fee is $250 per team and sponsorships are also available.
