For more than four decades, the Association of Educational Publishers‘ (AEP) Awards program has honored companies that provide outstanding resources for teaching and learning. One of the largest and longest-running awards programs for educational products, the AEP Awards identify products that exemplify the highest standards of professional, quality educational content, give credit and recognition to the organizations who are leading the way in the field, and set benchmarks to which the rest of the industry can aspire.
The Distinguished Achievement Awards recognize the year’s top educational products in four categories: Curriculum, Periodicals, Professional Development, and Technology & New Media. Entries are judged only against other products in their entry category, subcategory, and grade level.
Golden Lamps are awarded in the same categories, but just to one title in each, setting a “gold standard” for educational products. Golden Lamp entries are judged against products from all subjects and grade levels, raising the level of competition and distinction.
