Ted Bleecker Best of the Best Award: In-Service

Bellmore-Merrick United Secondary Teachers
Publication: Local Do's Newsletter
Editor(s): Bruce Reed

Judges Said: It struck both the judges that this publication made a decision to devote a great amount of space to the impact one teacher had. Each article differed enough so the sum was greater than the individual pieces.

This entry was more than just a beautiful tribute to a valued colleague. It was a testament to good teachers everywhere and how their talents and commitment to the classroom cannot be measured by teacher evaluation formulas. The entry makes that point abundantly clear.

Ted Bleecker Best of the Best Award: Retiree

United University Professions Retirees
Publication: The Active Retiree
Editor(s): Jo Schaffer

Judges Said: The impact of professional layout, photography, headline writing, etc. clearly marks this publication above the others. Writing by members – Big Pharm Spells Big Trouble, Economic Equality, and Chapter Updates are a pleasure to read.

The overall package was excellent. The topics were timely, informative and uniformly well written. The graphics, layout and headlines enhanced the content and lifted the entry to a higher level.
