Golden Lamp Awardee YCteen

Congratulations to PASE Board Member Keith Hefner and his organization Youth Communication for their Golden Lamp Award! Each year, the Association of American Publishers (AAP) names the winner of the Golden Lamp - the best educational magazine in the country. Judges select finalists from among the hundreds of outstanding publications that compete in other categories in AAP's annual contest. This year, Youth Communication's YCteen won the award. Founded in 1980, YCteen is a teen magazine written by a staff of 50 to 60 NYC teens, who participate in an intensive writing program under the direction of two full-time adult professional editors. Published six times during the school year, each issue is also accompanied by a teacher guide. Learn more about the magazine and the teacher guides, visit the YCTeen website.
