Education resource award finalists announced

Finalists in awards for outstanding education resource providers have been announced.

The New Zealand Content Counts Education Awards are designed to celebrate the quality and diversity of educational resources released in the past year by New Zealand companies.

While determining the finalists, the judges recognised the energy and effort invested by our local publishers into developing resources that support our teachers in their classroom. The judges further praised all entries for their usefulness in the classroom supporting teachers in their work.
