The South Carolina State Library recently announced the selection of South Carolina ETV and Public Radio’s KnowItAll.org website as a 2022 Notable State Documents award winner.
KnowItAll.org features over 9,000 mobile-friendly videos, worksheets and interactives for pre K-12 educators and the general public. The content sharing platform also includes teacher lesson plans that meet South Carolina education standards, along with topic-based content for one-to-one teaching and learning in classrooms. Popular series include Artopia, Conversations with Crescent, GullahNet, Let’s Go Careers and History in a Nutshell, along with many others. KnowItAll.org is funded by the S.C. General Assembly through the K-12 Technology Initiative.
Government documents come in a variety of formats and winning categories, including state agency monographs, serials and websites or apps. Winners of the South Carolina Notable State Documents award are announced in honor of Freedom of Information Day, which occurs annually on March 16. These noteworthy publications call attention to the most informative documents released by state agencies in 2022. Awards will be presented to the winning agencies and authors in a ceremony at the State Library on March 15.
Nominations for the Notable Documents Awards were submitted throughout the year, with final candidates being judged by a panel of librarians and state employees. Candidates were judged based on their designs, writing styles and breadth of information. The judges chose a unique group of twelve documents and websites for recognition, including a strategic plan for optimizing South Carolina's early childhood system, a student journal that showcases academic excellence, and a website developed by the state agency charged with ensuring the election process is fair, impartial and easily accessible for everyone in the state.
