The National Literacy Awards is an annual recognition rite that aims to acknowledge best practices in literacy initiated by LGUs and NGOs around the nation as these are key elements that would help attain relevant objectives such as alleviate poverty, provide livelihood, address welfare needs, promote freedom, and make education facilities accessible.
The 2022 NLA Awarding Ceremonies is set to be held in October 2022.
