Nominations for the Blackboard Awards: now through Nov 10th

Blackboard Award


Founded by New York Family's parent company Manhattan Media, The Blackboard Awards are currently accepting nominations for the 2014 Blackboard Awards for Schools and Principals, which will be announced on Tuesday, December 9th, at the Auditorium at Scholastic in Manhattan.


By telling us about a deserving school and/or principal, parents help to identify and honor our community's most important local heroes—our educators—and bring well-deserved attention to the school.


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 at all grade levels, nursery school through high school.


In addition to the special awards ceremony at Scholastic, the honored schools and principals will also be featured in New York Family magazine's annual Ultimate Guide to Education in New York City, an ongoing resource for local parents.


The nomination deadline is November 10.
