Edwize took first place in the “Best Blog” category at the annual awards presentation of the Metro New York Labor Communications Council, held this year on June 17 at the Murphy Institute for Worker Education and Labor Studies. This is the third year in a row we’ve received top honors from Metro — in 2009 and 2010 we were named “Best New Media.”
The judges wrote: “Edwize is the best education union blog we’ve ever seen. True to the blog format with its personal tone of powerful and moving member-written features that present authors as both teachers and union members. Regularly updated with diverse contributors — both staff and members. The blog is a pleasure to read.”
UFT.org was awarded first place in the category “General Excellence — Web.”
Thank you to Metro, and especially our writers, readers, and commenters.
