The mission of  Tome Student Literacy Society is to promote multiple literacies among 4th-12th grade students across the United States through: service; collaboration; competition-based club activities; and clean, entertaining, encouraging literature.


Tome Student Literacy Society (Tome Society) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in North Georgia. Tome Society provides student competitions; an annual It List of clean, entertaining, and encouraging children's and young adult literature; book club activities; curriculum materials for educators; and an annual conference for both students and educators. All activities promote self-esteem, leadership skills, strong values, and nurture critical thinking, creativity, and imagination in the digital age. Our vision is to become a nationwide student organization comparable to National Honor Society (NHS) and Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). We are well on our way as our organization has grown exponentially since its birth in 2012. Our dream is to provide scholarships and awards for outstanding student literacy projects through our organization’s competitions and activities.
