Jennifer Senior, a New York magazine contributing editor and the author of All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenthood, was the emcee. In addition to NYIT, the sponsors included the United Federation Of Teachers (UFT), the Yorkville Youth Athletic Association, and Amtrak.

    The longest-running and most prestigious celebration of excellence in local education, the Blackboard Awards honors educators and schools from all sectors (public, private, charter, and parochial) and grade levels (nursery through high school).
