Youth Communication wins a Golden Lamp, the most prestigious educational publishing award

Youth Communication wins a Golden Lamp, the most prestigious educational publishing award Youth Communication’s magazine, YCteen, received the coveted Golden Lamp award for “Best Magazine” (across all ages/grades) in the 2015 REVERE Awards, sponsored by the Association of American Publishers (AAP).

The REVERE Awards are the nation’s leading awards program for educational resources. The Golden Lamp is the most prestigious award in the REVERE Awards program. For this competition, judges identify resources that stand alone as the “best of the best” within each of the categories, transcending media, audience, and subject matter.

In addition to receiving the Golden Lamp, YCteen also received the honor of “Best Overall Publication” for (Ages 12+/Grades 7+).

The Spring 2014 issue of Represent, Youth Communication’s magazine by and for youth in foster care, was named “Best Single Editorial.” The theme of the issue is “You Don’t Know Me: Seeing Past Stereotypes.”

YCteen writer Paige Hodge’s story about coping with bullying, “Secret of the System: Why I Got a Safety Transfer,” was named a finalist in the “Feature Article” category.

Youth Communication’s teen writers compete against adult-written publications and industry giants such as Scholastic and the New York Times Upfront for the REVERE awards.
