Press Release: TEACHERS NETWORK CAPTURES EDPRESS 2002 DISTINGUISHED ACHIEVEMENT AWARD FOR BEST PORTAL IN TECHNOLOGY CATEGORY

Nonprofit Teachers Organization Wins Top Industry Honors
From the Association of Educational Publishers

NEW YORK, NY (June 15, 2002)-Teachers Network (http://teachersnetwork.org), a non-profit education organization that connects innovative teachers nationally and around the globe, has won the prestigious Distinguished Achievement Award (DAA) for best online portal in the Technology category, given yearly by the Association of Educational Publishers (AEP), Teachers Network announced today. Chosen from more than 50 entries in the Technology program, Teachers Network received top honors for excellence in educational publishing at the 39th annual EdPress event held at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. last week.  

The Distinguished Achievement Awards for excellence in educational technology, instructional materials and print and audio/visual media recognizes delivery of educational content using multimedia. In narrowing down the submissions to four finalists, the judges (drawn from a national pool of writing, publishing, and design experts in print and technology; education editors; educators; and curriculum experts) were most interested in the sites' educational value, accuracy of concepts, and ability to sustain audience interest, while also considering the creative use of technology, design integration, and ease of use. Teachers Network received a 15 out of the 16 possible points, beating out stiff competition from ENC Online (Eisenhower National Clearinghouse), www.teachingtolerance.org (Southern Poverty Law Center), and www.riverdeep.net, among others. 

"As Teachers Network stays at the forefront of providing invaluable information and resources for teachers, we're excited to accept this award on their behalf," said Ellen Dempsey, President and CEO of Teachers Network. " Our goal has always been a simple one, to keep good teachers teaching. By networking teachers with one another, and providing indispensable tools for professional development, Teachers Network has worked hand-in-hand with educators to improve student achievement and support and showcase the great work that's taking place in our nation's classrooms." 

"By shining a spotlight on the wide range of quality resources in the marketplace", AEP Executive Director Charlene Gaynor said, "we hope to provide schools, teachers, students and parents with some benchmarks for evaluating and choosing educational resources, and these award recipients have set the industry standards to which other companies aspire."
