  • Outstanding Literacy Program;
  • Outstanding Local Government Unit (LGU);
  • Highly Urbanized City;
  • Component City/Independent Component City;
  • First to Third Class Municipality, and;
  • Fourth to Sixth Class Municipality.

The Local Government Units (LGU) and Non-government Organizations (NGOs) that have sustained their exemplary performances for three years after winning shall be awarded a Special Award of Excellence in Literacy. 

The First-place winners for having maintained their rank for three years, consecutive or non-consecutive,  will be eligible for the Hall of Fame Awards.

Meanwhile, the Literacy Coordination Council (LCC) may recommend any outstanding literacy program implemented by NLA awardees to the UNESCO International Literacy Prize based on which category it will fit. 

The 2022 National Literacy Awards (NLA) will be held in September 2022. (MCeledeƱa/DepEd-Caraga/PIA-Caraga)
