New York State English Council Honored with 2021 NCTE Affiliate Newsletter of Excellence Award

Once again, our beloved NYSEC Newsletter has been recognized for an NCTE Affiliate Award thanks to the devotion of our editor, Christine Furnia!!

Established in 1992, this award recognizes outstanding newsletters of affiliates of NCTE that have published a minimum of three newsletters from May 2020 through the program deadline on June 30, 2021.

Newsletter submissions are judged on: content (particularly the inclusion of current, pertinent information with a good balance between theory, practice, and professional growth in formation), quality of writing, a clear and accurately defined purpose for the publication, a format which aids the reader in locating information and is easy to read, and the use of graphics to aid the overall effectiveness of the newsletter.

The Affiliate Newsletter of Excellence Award winners will be announced at the 2021 NCTE Annual Convention, during the Affiliate Event on Sunday, November 21, 2021.
