The Illinois Association of Teachers of English is excited to announce a new program geared toward identifying exceptional resources for teachers. We are currently looking for companies with product and service offerings geared toward literacy educators, or educators in general, to be considered for our 2019 IATE Classroom Essentials Award.
Finalists will be notified of their standing and invited to share a ten to twenty minute presentation about their best product or service to our panel of educational decision-makers and social media influencers on Thursday, October 18, 2018.
At dinner on Friday, October 19, we will announce winners in the following categories: middle school, high school, university, and general. Winners will receive formal recognition and a certificate at dinner as well as use of our logo and official comment in marketing and promotion. We will also partner with the winners to promote on our website and social media.
