Winners were announced at the awards gala held on October 9 in New York City.
Every day, our writers, editors and designers work to ensure that we are providing educators with the latest teaching news, tips, and advice, and it is an honor to earn this prestigious recognition and be in the company of the top digital teams and innovative minds in the publishing community.
