TEACHING YOUNG CHILDREN WINS TOP PRIZES AT REVERE AWARDS
NAEYC Publication Awarded Golden Lamp Award and Periodical of the Year;
Honored As 'Valuable Education Resource'
WASHINGTON — The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) received two awards for its Teaching Young Children magazine, including the Golden Lamp Award and Periodical of the Year, at the American Association of Publishers PreK-12 Learning Group’s REVERE Awards.
The REVERE Awards program recognizes exemplary educational materials for both children and adults, and is the most prestigious and comprehensive award program for preK-12 resources. Formerly known as the AEP Awards program, this annual event continues a decades-long tradition of honoring excellence across all resources for preK-12 and adult learners, educators and administrators. The four REVERE Award categories include: Beyond the Classroom, The Golden Lamp Awards, The Innovation Awards, and the Distinguished Achievement Awards.
“We are thrilled to receive these prestigious awards for Teaching Young Children,” said Derry Koralek, NAEYC’s Chief Publishing Officer. “The Golden Lamp award is particularly exciting for us as we have long been proud of the publication’s articles and features on relevant strategies and approaches teachers can use immediately in their work with preschoolers and families.”
The Golden Lamps are the most prestigious awards in the program. For this competition, judges identify products that stand alone as exemplars within each of the four categories, transcending media, audience, and subject matter.
NAEYC’s Teaching Young Children was awarded the Golden Lamp Award for periodicals, the REVERE Awards’ highest honor of merit for learning resources. It was also won the Distinguished Achievement Award for Periodical of the Year in the adult category. The publication was nominated for the Golden Lamp Award three times previously.
Teaching Young Children (TYC), NAEYC's practical, research-based magazine, is published five times per year and celebrates and supports everyone who works with preschoolers. Colorful graphics, illustrations, and photographs of engaged children and supportive teachers reinforce and build on the content of each article. NEXT for TYC is published online five times a year to coincide with each TYC issue. It offers a collection of training outlines that suggest ways to build on the content of TYC articles to implement new strategies in the classroom.
“I am incredibly proud of the NAEYC team behind Teaching Young Children,” said Rhian Evans Allvin, NAEYC’s executive director. “Decades of research have proven there is a small window of time during which children learn to talk, play, and get along with others. High quality teachers and staff can help ensure children in their care have the early experiences they need to be more likely to succeed in school, read on grade level and graduate on time. This award-winning publication is just one way NAEYC helps teachers build engaging classrooms, enhance relationships with parents and families, and develop rich experiences for their students.”
