    WATERBURY CENTER ó Vermont and New Hampshire elementary schools are invited to apply for a grant valued at $25,000 that provides literacy programming and new childrenís books.

    The Vermont-based Childrenís Literacy Foundation says the grantís purpose is to supplement existing literacy programs at schools that have high percentages of students who score below state standards on language arts tests and students who qualify for free or reduced lunch.

    Local authors, illustrators, poets, and storytellers may visit the schools to give presentations or lead workshops. Evening seminars also will give parents strategies for reading with their children.

    During the school year, students may also select and keep up to 10 new books.

    The Childrenís Literacy Foundation, known as CLiF, starts accepting applications in January. The deadline is Feb. 15.
