Welcome to the Blackboard Awards! For over a decade, the publishers of New York Family have highlighted a handful of schools, principals and teachers who are doing an amazing job at educating our city’s kids. What started in 2002 as a short series focused on schools has grown to be one of the most prestigious recognitions in NYC Education.

None of this would be possible without key input from the people on the front lines: teachers, principals, students and parents. That’s why we’ve created a website that gives plenty of opportunities for visitor input. Is your teacher, school or principal the best of the best? Nominate it for a Blackboard Award.
