Since 2002, The Blackboard Awards have been honoring excellence in education in New York City, celebrating schools, principals and teachers from all education communities–public, private, parochial, and charter–and from grade levels from nursery school through high school.
We are presently accepting nominations for the 2013 Blackboard Awards for Schools and Principals, which will take place on Monday, November 18 at The Auditorium at Scholastic, with emcee Lisa Belkin–former New York Times “Motherlode” columnist and current senior columnist on life, work, and family at Huffington Post.
Please take a minute now to visit blackboardawards.com and nominate your school or principal for a Blackboard Award.
We hope you’ll also forward the information to your school community–to parents and educators alike–letting them know about the awards and encouraging them to submit
their nominations at blackboardawards.com. Now’s the time: The deadline for nominations is Friday, October 18.
In our experience, it’s the class parents and PTAs, of course, who can really get out the vote, so we’re hoping you’ll get the information to them as soon as possible.
We’re sure you’ll agree: By telling us about a deserving school or principal, you’re helping us to identify and honor some of society’s most important and deserving local heroes–our educators! The Blackboard Awards are just a great way of showing your teachers and administrators how much you appreciate them.
The honored schools and principals will also be featured in New York Family‘s annual Ultimate Guide to Education in New York City.
